Allison Janney plays a “Reiki Master” who helps a sister (Rosemarie DeWitt) & brother (Josh Pais) appreciate the healing gift of touch.
Despite excellent performances all around, this observant family dramedy written & directed by Lynn Shelton is somehow a bit too gentle & “spaced-out” to work as well as it should. The pain we know these people must be feeling just never quite registers.
The runtime is a mere 89 minutes. This story definitely needed more. (JLH: 3.5/5) Click HERE for our FF2 Haiku.
