Ellen Page on her terror of improvising for new film 'Touchy Feely'


Ellen Page is no amateur.

Not only has she starred in some of the most beloved and successful modern indies, including cult favorite Hard Candy and her star-making role in  Juno, she’s also held her own in big-budget endeavors too, stealing scenes from the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio in Inception. But on her first day on set for director Lynn Shelton’s Touchy Feely, Page suddenly found herself paralyzed with fear and doubt.


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

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.” READ FULL STORY
