Lynn Shelton specializes in the small-scale high concept. She has an eye for delicately observed moments and casual absurdities that spin around an obvious plot engine. Like her features "Humpday" and "Your Sister's Sister," her latest Seattle-set comic drama, "Touchy Feely," is a work that gestures toward depths without truly plumbing them. In its gentle way, it's also her broadest, most schematic film. As the story of friends, family and identity crisis meanders toward its low-key feel-good conclusion, exceptionally lovely, nuanced performances by Rosemarie DeWitt and Allison Janney are the chief draw.

The director Lynn Shelton has built a career on small human moments, looking at interpersonal dynamics in the ways that they're really lived. In “Humpday” she captured male boastfulness and insecurity; in “Your Sister's Sister” it was unrequited love, sibling jealousy, and a pregnancy for good measure. Shelton's new movie goes down a similar path. Her dramatic comedy “Touchy Feely,” which world-premiered Saturday afternoon at the Sundance Film Festival, looks at the foibles of an extended family in Seattle, throwing in a dose of the New Agey not seen in her recent films.

Two offbeat comedies dominated the 28th annual Film Independent Spirit Award nominations Tuesday morning. David O. Russell's quirky "Silver Linings Playbook," starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, and Wes Anderson's charming coming-of-age comedy "Moonrise Kingdom," each earned five Spirit Award nominations, including best feature, director and screenplay. It was the second nod of support this week for "Moonrise Kingdom," which was named best film Monday evening at the Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York.

In the oppressively ruminative indie "How I Got Lost," floundering sportswriter Jake (Jacob Fishel) and his cynically aggressive Wall Street buddy Andrew (Aaron Stanford) are twentysomethings in a perpetually floating angst a year after 9/11. Spurred by Andrew's belief that their life plans are at the root of their problems, the pair escape New York for seemingly no reason. But their stop in rural Ohio reveals a certain emotionally motivated determination on Andrew's part, while Jake's romantic woes over a mysterious beauty he left behind begin healing when he meets a single-mom waitress (Rosemarie DeWitt)

"Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted" will be at the top of the box-office food chain for the second consecutive weekend, beating out two new star-studded arrivals. DreamWorks Animation's 3-D sequel is expected to gross at least $30 million this weekend, according to those who have seen pre-release audience surveys. That would bring the picture's worldwide total to well over $200 million after just 10 days in release. Last weekend's runner-up, "Prometheus," will probably end up in the same position again, though it could find itself in a tight race with newcomer "Rock of Ages.

UNDERRATED 'Your Sister's Sister' (2012) : Now on DVD, this lightly twisted romantic comedy has a syntaxically challenging title, but it's a sure bet as new offerings grow slim at theaters. Starring Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt and the seemingly everywhere Mark Duplass, this film uses a lush Pacific Northwest setting for a rich, intimate look at how relationships can grow more powerful the more unconventional they become. Kurt Rosenwinkel's 'Star of Jupiter' : One of top talents in contemporary jazz guitar, Rosenwinkel sounds as virtuosic as ever on this 2012 double album.
