In an age of invention, one man set out to find a medical cure for what ails women…and accidentally electrified our love lives forever. HYSTERIA is a lighthearted romantic comedy that tells the surprising story of the birth of the electro-mechanical vibrator at the very peak of Victorian prudishness. Academy Award® nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal (CRAZY HEART, NANNY McPHEE RETURNS) and Hugh Dancy (ADAM, CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC) lead an accomplished cast in this untold tale of discovery.

Critics Consensus: Hysteria has an amusing subject but its winking, vaguely sarcastic tone doesn't do the movie any favors.

17+ COMMON SENSE

Movie about sex toy invention isn't all that graphic.
