Editorial Reviews

Abby (Rosemarie DeWitt), is a sought
after massage therapist and a free
spirit, while her brother Paul (Josh Pais) thrives on routine, running a failing dental practice with his assistant and daughter Jenny (Ellen Page). Suddenly, Abby develops an aversion to bodily contact, which not only makes her unable to do her job, but also severely affects her relationship with her boyfriend (Scoot McNairy). As Abby navigates her way through an identity crisis, her brother's dental practice receives new life when clients seek out his "healing touch."

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a lot to go on here September 29, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Touchy Feely is a character study about largely uninteresting characters. By the time the film ends rather abruptly, the significant path many of the characters need to go on for personal transformation seems hardly begun and so the film cheats you of a sense of closure. And at that point, you'll ask yourself why you just wasted 90 minutes with these people. All in all, the film's dialogue seems forced and the plot points become a bit cartoonish and outlandish in nature. The actors are all terrific--they get through the bland dialog as well as they can, but the words betray the soul of their characters. I love a good, small film about interesting people. They can't be found anywhere in this piece...

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm A Fan of Shelton, So It's Hard To Review This... September 12, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The film wasn't bad. But there were some things keeping it from allowing to be a well executed film. I don't want to associate this film with being 'Mumblecore' in any way, shape, or form. I think it has its own voice and is standing alone just fine without the movement. I love the message of the film, the performances, and I love that Lynn didn't hold back her intentions. But when the credits rolled, I felt I was still missing something. Overall, what kept me watching was the interactions and where everything would eventually lead to. But nothing really sealed the deal for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Subtle Drama January 31, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The trailer makes this film seem like it's all about a massage therapist developing a sudden repulsion to touching anyone. In reality, all the characters get equal focus. There isn't much plot. It's all about observing the emotional state of these people. I actually enjoyed the fact that it never seems to be in a hurry to get anywhere in particular. Audiences are allowed to draw their own conclusions. Yes, some of them are a little crazy...but real life crazy instead of hyped up Hollywood crazy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartfelt, Awkward, Visually Stunning September 15, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This movie manages to tell an original story while capturing the essence of Seattle and all its quirkiness very poignantly.

A massage therapist, Abby (Dewitt) finds herself unable to touch anyone while her until now underwhelming dentist brother Paul (Pais) suddenly is being heralded as a magical healer of TMJ. Jenny as Ellen Page is wonderful as always as Paul's daughter and floundering young adult trapped at home by her fear of hurting her father's feelings. Throw in Scoot McNairy as Abby's hipster cyclist boyfriend and this is a rock solid main cast. Tomo Nakayama as Henry (and his wonderful original music) as a love interest for Jenny and all bets are off.

Lynn Shelton is well known for giving actors room to play around with the script making it their own and this shows here in a wonderful way. This movie will make you laugh and possibly weep a little, but isn't that what a good film is supposed to do? Go see it, run to the theater if you must.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great actors —poor story August 30, 2013
By pamela
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The story was lacking any forward momentum. The characters didn't warrant enough interest or sympathy to keep my interest. I also found the method of their enlightenment tired and lazy. I was bored.

3.0 out of 5 stars Scored and shot well but story beats lacking April 23, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Tomo Nakayama and Josh Pais (two of the lesser known actors compared to DeWitt and Pafe) deliver the best performances. Overall the story is extremely melodramatic with a slower pace than most people will like - classic Indie film. That said it's shot and scored (also Nakayama credit on this) very well for an Indie budget. Would have loved to have seen a much more closed ending than the dinner table close - left asking "that's it!?"

3.0 out of 5 stars Promising until the end December 28, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I liked the trailer and was thrilled to finally watch this movie. It was great in the first half, but then became very strange in the second half. Not sure I understand what happened.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not Great September 13, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Enjoyed this off beat indie film... but it was missing that "got to love it" review. Somehow all the characters seemed to be missing enough edge to make me really care about them. They all had their chip on the shoulder - some more than others. The ending was a bit too pat.

Then this movie goes nowhere. I guess the viewer is supposed to assume that all is solved by an MDMA trip, because it just ends afterwards without even any dialogue. Read more
