Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy head up a stellar cast in Tanya Wexler's offbeat comedy Hysteria, based on the true story of Dr. Mortimer Granville — the man who created the world’s first vibrator, back in 1880.
In a search to cure the baffling female medical condition of the day, ‘hysteria’, the young doctor (played by Dancy) and his new boss Dr. Dalrymple (Jonathon Pryce) create the ‘feather duster’, offering women intimate manual relief from their condition – and, by chance, generating a surprising increase in business.
The film is a joyful and light-hearted take on the birth of the sex toy, likely to put a knowing smile on a few faces in the audience.
