Abby (Rosemarie DeWitt) is a sought-after massage therapist and a free spirit, while her brother Paul (Josh Pais) thrives on routine, running a failing dental practice with his assistant and daughter Jenny (Ellen Page). Suddenly, Abby develops an aversion to bodily contact, which not only makes her unable to do her job, but also severely affects her relationship with her boyfriend (Scoot McNairy). As Abby navigates her way through an identity crisis, her brother's dental practice receives new life when clients seek out his "healing touch."

A sweet movie, with a variety of quirky characters and their relationships. All in all it's just a bit of nice, light, enjoyable entertainment with no heavy-handed drama or message - enjoy!

A little slow and quirky, cool to see the Seattle scenes!

Quite odd. I think the authors/producers *think* they have a point, but it is hard to find.

It doesn't give you a beginning, middle and end type of story - but more a chance to get to know some interesting and very likable characters as they travel through their present. Refreshing to see examples of supportive and complex relationships between friends, family & lovers.

Really slow going, boring. I kept hoping something would happen that would catch my interest. It didn't. All the dimly lit scenes, the sustained focus on one thing (like hands), the attempt to show what a person high on ecstasy sees -- all did not work for me as an alternative/arty/independent film. The characters don't really connect but I didn't care. All in all, a waste of my time.

Very slow, hard to keep your attention. My husband and I multi-tasked while we watched this movie so that should explain to you how we felt.

Another indie film that appreciates the Seattle scene in all aspects.
A family struggling with deep emotional wounds whilst trying to find themselves.
The title says it all.IT tags at your heartstrings, but also hilarious.
For anyone who watches this, you'll be able to recognize many, if not all, of the locations.
Another LS gem!
