    Review: 'The Way, Way Back' Cost Fox Searchlight $10 Million. Was It Worth It?

    If there's one positive result from distributor Fox Searchlight's decision at the Sundance Film Festival to pay nearly $10 million for "The Way, Way Back," it should be this: It will remind people about "Adventureland," a far superior movie about an awkward, frustrated teen spending his summer worki...

    Watch: Trailer For Dramedy 'Touchy Feely' Starring Rosemarie DeWitt, Ellen Page & Scoot McNairy

    Premiering at Sundance earlier this year, "Touchy Feely" was a movie that didn't quite connect with us (read our review). That being said, this new trailer for the movie reminded our reviewer of the great moments contained within, and this cast is certainly worth seeing in any movie, no matter what.

    Sundance Review: Lynn Shelton's 'Touchy Feely' Flirts With Greatness, But Proves Too Listless & Frustrating

    There's a strange and opaque energy coursing through the veins of Lynn Shelton's languid fifth feature-length effort, "Touchy Feely." It's a little mysterious, to the film’s moody credit, and it’s a little unavailable and removed, to its detriment. Lead actress Rosemarie DeWitt admitted, "I didn't r...
