Watch First Trailer For Lynne Shelton's Touchy Feely

No comments: Links to this post
The queen of mumblecore Lynn Shelton returns with her latest dramedy Touchy Feely starring Rosemarie Dewitt as Abby a free spirited massage therapist who develops an aversion to human touch. This is not good for business for Abby not just professionally but also personally and her relationship with her boyfriend (Scoot McNairy).

The film made its debut at Sundance and Sundance London festivals this year, it's a film that sneaked onto cinephiles radar. Its probably Shelton's best ensemble unfortunately for those people who caught this film that cast seems to be the films strongest feature. Touchy Feely certainly looks a ambitious film and if your like us fans of Your Sister's Sister this film should still bring you  satisfaction and escapism for those film fans who want something different from the usual array of big Hollywood blockbusters that dominate the cinemas at this time of the year.

We don't actually have an UK&Irish release date yet but Touchly Feely is due a 6th September USA release date. The film also stars Ellen Page, Allison Janney, Josh Pais,Ron Livingston and Tomo Nakayama.


TOUCHY FEELY is a closely observed examination of a family whose delicate psychic balance suddenly unravels. Abby (Rosemarie DeWitt), is a sought after massage therapist and a free spirit, while her brother Paul (Josh Pais) thrives on routine and convention, running a flagging dental practice and co-dependently enlisting the assistance of his emotionally stunted daughter Jenny (Ellen Page). Suddenly, transformation touches everyone. 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 (Scoot McNairy).

Brit Marling Jams With Anarchy In UK Trailer For Sundance Hit The East

No comments: Links to this post
THE EAST starring Brit Marling (Another Earth, Arbitrage), Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood), Ellen Page (Juno) and Patricia Clarkson (Station Agent) will be released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on June 28th 2013. To Mark the release Fox Searchlight have sent us the official UK trailer and poster which you can check out below.

An official selection at this year’s Sundance and SXSW Film Festivals, THE EAST sees Director Zal Batmanglij collaborate once more with actress and co-writer Brit Marling following their critically acclaimed debut Sound Of My Voice.

Marling plays a a private intelligence operative whose task is to infiltrate a eco-anarchist terrorist group known as 'The East' who are causing havoc to an big powerful corporate. Once she gets inside the group she starts to fall for the  groups leader (Page) forcing her to rethink her priorities.

I was really eager to see Sound Of My Voice sadly it didn't get the cinematic run it deserved in the UK but what I know of both films they are similar in nature. Both run the theme of cult though The East is heading more into political thriller a lot more conventional than the directors previous film. The trailer is short but sweet which delivers a sense of mystery, wrapped around an intriguing premise what is also intriguing is the role of Ellen Page as a terrorist leader a role we never expect her to play so will be interest to see how she fares.

The East also stars Michael Costigan and Jocelyn Hayes-Simpson with Ridley Scott producing. The film will arrive in UK Cinemas from 28th June.


THE EAST, a suspenseful and provocative espionage thriller, stars Marling as former FBI agent Sarah Moss. Moss is starting a new career at Hiller Brood, an elite private intelligence firm that ruthlessly protects the interests of its A-list corporate clientele. Handpicked for a plum assignment by the company’s head honcho, Sharon (Patricia Clarkson), Sarah goes deep undercover to infiltrate The East, an elusive anarchist collective seeking revenge against major corporations guilty of covering up criminal activity. Determined, highly-trained and resourceful, Sarah soon ingratiates herself with the group, overcoming their initial suspicions and joining them on their next action or “jam.” But living closely with the intensely committed members of The East, Sarah finds herself torn between her two worlds as she starts to connect with anarchist Benji (Alexander Skarsgård) and the rest of the collective, and awakens to the moral contradictions of her personal life.
