Based on the true story of the doctor who invented the vibrator, the HuffingtonPost.com writes:
“Maggie Gyllenhaall and Hugh Dancy are going to have a scream this fall. The two stars headline the new film, “Hysteria,” that tackles the delicate narrative of the female orgasm in the advent of the vibrator. Set in Victorian-era England, Dancy and Jonathan Pryce are doctors treating female hysteria but are frustrated with their imperfect, crude methods. Thus, we welcome a primitive, though effective, vibrator. Gyllenhaal plays Pryce’s fiery daughter who bares witness to this female revolution. The trailer does not shy away from its subject matter, so loosen your girdle, things are about to heat up.”
