Rosemarie DeWitt plays Abby, a massage therapist whose boyfriend (Scoot McNairy) wants to get serious just as she develops a sudden discomfort when she makes bodily contact with anyone.
Lynn Shelton makes small, intimate movies about ordinary people… but don't mistake her for your average indie filmmaker. Every one of Shelton's movie has room for a touch of the strange, whether it's two straight guys dead set on making a gay porn together in Humpday, a guy accidentally sleeping with his best friend's lesbian sister in Your Sister's Sister, or a masseuse who suddenly, inexplicably, can't stand touching people
Writer-director Lynn Shelton has drawn a ton of praise this year for her touching and troubling dramedy Your Sister's Sister. The film, which centered on the tangled relationship of a man in mourning, his generous best friend and her heartbroken big sister, scored coveted spots at the Toronto International Film Festival and Sundance before hitting theaters in the U.S. last June.
