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

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. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Lynn Shelton gets 'Touchy Feely' -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

Lynn Shelton’s latest film has a touchy subject. Literally. The writer-director of Humpday and Your Sister’s Sister is re-teaming with Rosemarie DeWitt — who just scored a Spirit nom for Sister — on Touchy Feely, a drama about a massage therapist who develops an aversion to bodily contact. Shelton spoke exclusively with EW about the project, which she says goes into more dramatic territory that her previous projects. “It doesn’t have this rollicky, bantering feel that my last couple films have had,” she says. “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.” READ FULL STORY
