Movie Summary

Director:
Tanya Wexler
Released:
2012
Rating:
R
In an age of invention, one man set out to find a medical cure for what ailed 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.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Hysteria, is a pleasurable diversion, even if it could have used a touch more spark in the writing.

  • 63

    Slant Magazine

    Hysteria's happy ending isn't the type that calls for a cigarette, and it certainly isn't the one the film deserves.

  • 60

    Boxoffice Magazine Sara Maria Vizcarrondo

    Though the film is a fairly plastic British period piece with all the intimacy of a Hitachi Wand, the script captures some delicate and intelligent facets of a tensely conflicted era.
