Synopsis
Set in the 1880's, just as a flurry of newfangled gadgets and inventions was forging the world as we now know it, the film follows the historic creation of the best-selling domestic appliance that dared not announce its true purpose: the electrical vibrator. What emerges is more than a playful comic romp; HYSTERIA is a feisty love story and a trip into hidden history, an exploration of women's passion and a celebration of the forward-thinking spirit that has always kept human progress buzzing.



"We knew that we'd have to find a unique tone," says Wexler, "Because while it might be a 19th Century story, it's a subject that still makes us blush in 2011. The fun was in creating a kind of lush, Merchant Ivory reality on the surface, but with a hilarious, unbridled comedy running underneath it."

With a cast led by Academy Award® nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal (CRAZY HEART) and leading man Hugh Dancy (MY IDIOT BROTHER), the film's Victorian past resonates with questions that still preoccupy us today – about sexual attitudes, men and women, and how to lead a truly satisfying life.

“[HYSTERIA is] Not nearly as outrageous or unconventional as its premise might suggest, but saucy and enjoyable all the same.”—David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

“HYSTERIA is Jane Austen with a vibrator… Tastefully directed by Tanya Wexler, it is a total joy from start to finish.”—Rex Reed, New York Observer.
