Hysteria

A romantic comedy about the invention of the vibrator. ____________________________________________________________________ Based loosely on the life of Joseph Mortimer Granville, the man who invented a somewhat unusual device for treating female hysteria. The film is set at the end of the 19th century, when an official medical technique for the treatment of female hysteria included 'massage of the pelvic area'. Dr Robert Dalrymple (Jonathan Pryce) has set up a surprisingly successful practice specialising in the treatment. Dashing young doctor Mortimer Granville (Hugh Dancy) joins the firm and proves particularly popular with the women who go there to have their hysteria alleviated. Mortimer also proves popular with Dalrymple's two daughters, Charlotte (Maggie Gyllenhaal) and Emily (Felicity Jones), who compete for his affection. Which one of the girls will he choose? And what is the device he has in mind for revolutionising the treatment of female hysteria?____________________________________________________________________ Starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy.

    Lite smårolig film. Väl värd att se eftersom den dessutom speglar den sanna bilden av hysteriska kvinnor... ;)

    En mycket underhållande och trevlig film om kvinnans frigörelse och sexualitet i slutet av 1800-talets England, och om en uppfinning som det talas om än idag. Strålande skådespelarinsatser och ett välskrivet manus.

    4/5
