Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy star in this offbeat and very amusing romantic comedy. Based on a true story, Hysteria is set in 1880, and follows Mortimer Granville (Dancy), a young doctor disillusioned by his colleagues' medieval practices. He starts working for Dr Dalrymple, who treats cases of the female ailment commonly known as ‘hysteria’ by offering them intimate manual relief.
Demand becomes so great that Dalrymple and Mortimer cannot keep up with 'curing' women. To keep Mortimer working, Dalrymple promises him his business, and the hand of his beautiful young daughter. But when Mortimer falls for Dalrymple's older daughter, the feisty thirty-year old feminist (Gyllenhaal) who runs a women's refuge in east London, his future looks doubtful.
In the delightful spirit of Calendar Girls, Hysteria takes a rather remarkable and daring true story and turns it into a gentle, warm-hearted comedy, sending sparks flying between a cautious man and a liberated woman brought together by the wonders of friction.
