Watch: New Official Release Trailer for 'Hysteria' with Hugh Dancy
"Whether you seek it or not Dr. Granville, you are destined for fame." Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the official release trailer on Yahoo for Tanya Wexler's Hysteria, a period romantic comedy starring Hugh Dancy, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Felicity Jones, Jonathan Pryce and Rupert Everett. Yes, this Hysteria film is the same TIFF one from last year, a delightful Victorian London drama about the dashing Doctor who creates the world's first vibrator "in the name of medical science." This trailer is a bit tamer than the first trailer we posted last fall, until the end, but it still looks like a fun time, oddly enough for a Victorian drama.
Watch the official US theatrical trailer for Tanya Wexler's Hysteria, in high def via Yahoo:
A romantic comedy set in Victorian London based on the surprising truth of how Mortimer Granville (Hugh Dancy) came up with the world's first electro-mechanical vibrator in the name of medical science.
Hysteria is directed by American filmmaker Tanya Wexler, half sister of Daryl Hannah and both a Yale and Columbia University film graduate, who directed Finding North and Ball in the House previously. The screenplay was written by Jonah Lisa Dyer & Stephen Dyer. This premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and was picked up by Sony Pictures Classics. They're releasing Hysteria in limited theaters May 18th.

This went u in Swden this fall. It has a DTV feel, it won't hurt anyone to watch it... but I bet there will always be better films to choose at the theatre.

Why don't they have doctors for this ailment nowadays?

This was a well written, well filmed movie. Good colors, sets also. I only wish there were wider shots of the victorian era architecture, but I know that's expensice or will be CGI like the Spartan architecture in 300. Good movie overall, even for a guy.

Yea, but kinda slow in the middle, and predictable ending, although you have to expect that nowadays.
