Ellen Page and Scoot McNairy in 'Touchy Feely'

Magnolia Pictures announced they’ve picked up Touchy Feely from writer/director Lynn Shelton. Starring Rosemarie DeWitt, Josh Pais, Scoot McNairy, and Ellen Page, Touchy Feely premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and marks Shelton’s second film in a row with DeWitt. The two previously worked together on Your Sister’s Sister.
The Plot:
Touchy Feely takes an intimate look at a family whose delicate psychic balance suddenly unravels. It centers on Abby (DeWitt), a sought after massage therapist and a free spirit, and her brother Paul (Pais) who thrives on routine and convention. Paul runs a flagging dental practice with the assistance of his emotionally stunted daughter Jenny (Page). Things take a turn when Abby develops an uncontrollable aversion to bodily contact, which not only makes her occupation impossible but severely hinders the passionate love life between her and her boyfriend (McNairy). Meanwhile, rumors of Paul’s “healing touch” begin to miraculously invigorate his practice as well as his life outside the office.
