What’s with the title of writer-director Lynn Shelton’s new dramedy? Think literal. The Sundance Film Festival darling follows a pair of siblings who experience sudden, dramatic shifts in their senses of touch. While Abby (Rosemarie DeWitt), a massage therapist, develops an intense aversion to bodily contact, her emotionally stunted brother, Paul (Ray Donovan’s Josh Pais), emerges with a seemingly healing power of touch that boosts his dental practice. ”It’s about identity, that eternal question of who am I and how do I fit in the world,” says Shelton. ”It’s about becoming comfortable about living in one’s own skin.” And, we suppose, who’s touching it.
