Hysteria Trailer Starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy

Hysteria Trailer: Hugh Dancy Invents the Vibrator

Yup, you read that title correctly. In Hysteria, Hugh Dancy plays a Victorian-era doctor who is up to his elbows (um, kind of literally) trying to cure women of "hysteria," which, in this case, seems to be a fancy way of saying aroused and/or sexually frustrated. To make the relief process easier, he and his partner (Rupert Everett) invent the first vibrator with the help of some electricity and a feather duster. Maggie Gyllenhaal also pops up as a sassy love interest.


The trailer looks a little silly, but the fact that it's inspired by true events has me intrigued. Plus, it's hard not to giggle in spite of yourself at loaded one-liners like "Imagine if everyone had one!" To see the trailer, just read more.
