» Lynn Shelton's 'Touchy Feely' with Rosemarie DeWitt and Ellen Page gets September release

Touchy Feely

After picking up a Grand Jury Prize nomination at this year’s Sundance Film Festival in January, Lynn Shelton’s Touchy Feely is set for a September 6 release in theaters and on VOD, a rep for the film confirms exclusively to EW. Written and directed by Lynn Shelton (Your Sister’s Sister), the dramedy tells the intertwining stories of two siblings: A massage therapist (Rosemarie DeWitt) who becomes averse to touching bodies, and a dentist (Josh Pais) who discovers that he may have the ability to mysteriously heal patients with his touch. “Abby, the massage therapist, is free spirited and in touch with feelings. And Paul [the dentist] is the polar opposite: scared of the world, not wanting any change. And the two of them enter these journeys of self-discovery for kind of opposite reasons,” explains Shelton, who originally developed the characters for two separate movies. “Then I realized, they should be in the same movie! They’d be an interesting juxtaposition with each other, so I’ll make them brother and sister.”

Ellen Page plays the dentist’s daughter, and the cast is rounded out with supporting turns by Allison Janney, Ron Livingston, and Scoot McNairy. “This movie is a broader scope for me,” says Shelton. “Instead of just turning the microscope on three people in one location, there are lots of locations and multiple story lines, an ensemble cast. [But] it’s similar territory in that it’s still relationships between people — and the relationships between people and themselves.”
