Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy to Star in Hysteria About the Invention of the Vibrator 2010-08-20 10:30:02

Hugh Dancy and Maggie Gyllenhaal Turn It On For Hysteria

No need to blush, so let's just come out with it: Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy have signed on for Hysteria, a Victorian-era indie rom-com about the invention of the vibrator (definitely not your traditional romantic comedy).

Dancy will play a doctor who treats women suffering from an acute case of so-called "hysteria," an affliction of the time marked by "irritability, anger, or unexplained tears." To cure them, he partners up with his best friend (Rupert Everett) to create the device (though some doctors had their own methods of relieving the symptoms). Gyllenhaal costars as the daughter of one of Dancy's colleagues (Jonathan Pryce) and presumably Dancy's love interest. The actress has never been sheepish about tackling a little sexual taboo (hello, Secretary), but with a couple of Brits by her side, this movie sounds like cheeky good fun.

I like the cast and the plot-line sounds like an interesting premise for a good comedy; I look forward to watching the film when it is available to rent.
