Hysteria is the upcoming romantic comedy starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hugh Dancy, Jonathan Pryce, Rupert Everett, Ashley Jensen, Sheridan Smith, Gemma Jones, Felicity Jones and Anna Chancellor. I am already loving the movie based on the cast alone. Here’s a tid bit on the story:
“Hysteria” is centered on the invention of the vibrator in Victorian-era England. Dancy and Pryce will star as doctors in London treating cases of hysteria, a condition said to be characterized at the time by a woman’s irritability, anger or unexplained tears. Dancy’s character and his best friend, portrayed by Everett, experiment with a new electrical device for treatment for the ailment. Gyllenhaal portrays the daughter of Pryce’s character.
