    Touchy Feely

    I like many qualities of Lynn Shelton’s work ("Humpday," "Your Sister’s Sister") and her latest, low-key effort has particular promise because it has such a strong, well-chosen cast,

    Lynn Shelton's Family Close-Up, 'Touchy Feely'

    As we know from moisturizer commercials -- and are reminded by an unlikely source, Lynn Shelton's Touchy Feely -- extreme close-ups of skin are not pretty, full of cracks and lines and bumps. We see these shots because Rosemarie De Witt plays Abby, a massage therapist whose emotional life is qu...

    TIFF Review: Jason Bateman's Directorial Debut 'Bad Words'

    Review: Lynn Shelton's 'Touchy Feely' Starring Rosemarie DeWitt, Ellen Page & Josh Pais

    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...

    Sundance Rerun: Interview with Lynn Shelton - Director of Touchy Feely

    I had never met Lynn Shelton before last month but I already felt like I knew her. She has a way of telling us stories about other people that are really about all of us. Her new film Touchy Feely is about a brother and sister, one who touches for a living and one who makes a point of not getting to...

    Steve Carell in the Sweet, Endearing 'The Way Way Back'

    Just when it seemed that the days of overpaying for Sundance movies had ended, this year Fox Searchlight spent almost $10 million for the very conventional-sound coming-of-age movie The Way Way Back. That deal sent me into the screening room recently wondering if they'd lost their minds; I left ...

    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...

    This fall will mark fifty years since November 22, 1963 -- a date that continues to haunt American history. When John F. Kennedy was assassinated, it seemed to mark an undeniable shift in the country, away from the positivity and hope that followed War War II, into a more fraught and frightened era ...
