If the perfectly titled Touchy Feely hits its mark with the same accuracy as Your Sisters Sister did in terms of likeable, flawed, multidimensional, complex set of characters, perfectly structured three-act with climatic denouement and naturalistic yummy dialogue, then Ill regret having placed Lynn Sheltons name further down the most anticipated list. After imperfect, humble beginnings, Seattles Best might be ready to cross over into television/broader comedy projects.
Gist: A massage therapist is unable to do her job when stricken with a mysterious and sudden aversion to bodily contact. Meanwhile, her uptight brothers foundering dental practice receives new life when clients seek out his healing touch.
Release Date: U.S Dramatic Competition Sundance Film Festival. A theatrical rights deal should be put into place hours after its premiere.
