Magnolia takes world on Touchy Feely
Lynn Shelton’s comedic drama premiered at Sundance and stars Rosemarie DeWitt, Josh Pais, Ellen Page, Scoot McNairy, Allison Janney, Ron Livingston and newcomer Tomo Nakayama.
Magnolia’s recent arrival Christina Rogers will handle world sales on the tale of a masseuse who loses her affinity for touch at the same time as her uptight dentist brother develops healing hands. Steven Schardt produced.
Senior vp of acquisitions Dori Begley brokered the Touchy Feely deal with Submarine and UTA on behalf of the film-makers.
Magnolia previously distributed Shelton’s Sundance 2009 hit Humpday.
