It's unlikely to win many major awards, though 'Touchy Feely' is likely to be a perfectly watchable indie flick.
The trailer for Touchy Feeling, the new indie-flick written and directed by Humpday's Lynn Shelton, has rolled out online. It stars Rosemarie DeWitt as Abby, a well-respected massage therapist who lives life to the fullest, while her quiet brother Paul struggles with his angst-ridden teenage daughter, played by Ellen Page.
Things get a little complicated when Abby's boyfriend offers her a home at his place and things go from bad to worse when she finds herself unable to face a new client having developed a phobia of skin-to-skin contact. Oh, and Abby's niece develops a crush on her boyfriend and attempts to seduce him. OH NO SHE DIDN'T.
Meanwhile, brother Paul's life begins to turn around when a patient claims his healing hands cured his toothache. Suddenly, his waiting room is packed, though can his newfound 'magic touch' help his sister Abby regain the fun in her life?
With a supporting cast including Josh Pais, Kate Bayley, Rosemarie DeWitt, Alycia Delmore, Touch Feely looks to be a light-hearted piece of drama that should please fans of My Effortless Brilliance, Your Sister's Sister and the like. In other words, a few laughs and a few tears.
Touchy Feely opened in theatres on June 9, 2012, through Magnolia Pictures.
