2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Lynn Shelton’s Touchy Feely

L’enfant chéri of the festival, Lynn Shelton has showcased Humpday (Sundance ’09) and Your Sister’s Sister (Sundance ’12) and by all logic should be bringing Touchy Feely to the fest as well. Naturally this was shot in her backyard of Seattle, where filming began in April of this year, so this should be prepped for a Premieres unveiling and a spirited bidding war. Cinematographer Benjamin Kasulke once again accompanies Shelton. So does her producer Steven Schardt. And so does actress Rosemarie DeWitt, who is joined by Ellen Page (see tweet pic with Shelton above), Scoot McNairy, Allison Janney, Ron Livingston and Josh Pais.

Gist: Working with several storylines, the comedy sees Rosemarie Dewitt as a massage therapist who suddenly finds the human body repulsive.

Production Co./Producers: Steven Schardt (Humpday, Your Sister’s Sister)

Prediction: Premieres section.
