» Family drama 'Touchy Feel' premieres at Sundance Film Fest

by Ed Moy, published on January 19, 2013

Touchy Feely

Director Lynn Shelton's family drama "Touchy Feely" will premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival today in Park City, Utah.

"Touchy Feely" is among the nominees for the Grand Jury Prize for U.S. Dramatic Feature Films at this year's festival, which runs Jan. 17-27.

The film stars Rosemarie DeWitt, Josh Pais, Ellen Page, Scoot McNairy, Allison Janney, Ron Livingston, and newcomer Tomo Nakayama.

Shelton is a Sundance alum with two previous films having screened at the festival, the comedy "Humpday" about two guys who take their bromance to another level when they participate in an art film project and the dramedy "Your Sister’s Sister" about a woman who invites her male friend to her family's island getaway after the death of his brother, only to have the man get involved with her sister during a revealing stretch of days. Both films starred Sundance favorite Mark Duplass.

With "Touchy Feely" Shelton explores what happens when a family’s delicate psychic balance suddenly unravels.

Abby is a free-spirited massage therapist. Her brother, Paul, an emotional zombie, owns a flagging dental practice, where he enlists the assistance of his equally emotionally stunted daughter, Jenny.

Suddenly, transformation touches everyone. Abby develops an uncontrollable aversion to bodily contact, which seriously hinders her chosen profession and the passionate love life she once shared with her boyfriend. Meanwhile, rumors of Paul’s “healing touch” begin to miraculously invigorate his practice. As Abby navigates through an identity crisis, her brother discovers a whole new side of himself.
