Touchy Feely rating: green light

Touchy Feely green light

Gentle, warmly human dramedy about a massage therapist who suddenly can’t stand to touch anyone… and about how we all need more care and attention than we get. Rosemarie DeWitt is heartbreakingly lovely.
I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

  • Beowulf

    What else has Ms. DeWitt been in?

  • Danielm80

    I know her from Rachel Getting Married, but she’s been in quite a few movies and television shows, including several episodes of Mad Men before I stopped watching.

    Sadly, she also seems to be appearing in a remake of Poltergeist.

    There’s a service you should look into called Google. See also:

  • Tonio Kruger

    She also played Charmaine, the sister of the title character in The United States of Tara.

    It would be nice to think that she is also related to actress Joyce DeWitt of Three’s Company fame, but she is not.

  • Beowulf

    Yes, yes…I know about imdb. I go there everyday. But I was right here and wanted to use the collective knowledge of the Internet and brother-/sisterhood of film geeks.

  • LaSargenta

    *snort*

    Poor Beowulf. I think he’s feeling lonely.

  • LaSargenta

    There’s no sibling-hood here, bucko! Every geek for hirself.

  • Beowulf

    I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

  • LaSargenta

    Listen up, Bilbo…
