» 'Touchy Feely' trailer: Rosemarie DeWitt just can't deal

by Lindsey Bahr, published on June 14, 2013 - 05:29 PM ET

What happens when a massage therapist suddenly can’t stand to touch her clients…or anyone?

That’s at least one of the questions explored in Touchy Feely, writer-director Lynn Shelton’s followup to Your Sister’s Sister and Humpday. The film follows Abby (Rosemarie DeWitt), the aforementioned masseuse, and Paul (Josh Pais), her dentist brother who suddenly discovers he can actually heal people with his touch. Argo’s Scoot McNairy co-stars as Abby’s boyfriend Jesse who, apparently, takes a liking to her niece (Ellen Page).

The film, which also stars Ron Livingson and Allison Janney, premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival where it picked up a Grand Jury Prize nomination.

In December, Shelton spoke with EW about the film and acknowledged that Touchy Feely is quite a different approach for her. “It doesn’t have this rollicky, bantering feel that my last couple films have had,” she said. “It definitely has laughs, but it really is a drama. It’s really about attempting to live in your own skin, both literally and metaphorically.”

She added: “It always kind of comes back to the same thing for me, which is the sense of ‘Who am I?’ [I'm drawn to questions about] your relationship to other people and how you sort of shift your sense of identity within your relationships with specific other people — but also in relationship with yourself.”

Touchy Feely hits theaters and VOD on September 6.
