Hysteria (2011)

a hilarious, if mostly successful, historical romp through the sordid history of male pretension and female pleasure.

Chronicling the invention of the vibrator, Hysteria follows struggling doctor Mortimer Granville (Hugh Dancy) after he gains employment at a niche medical practice, specializing in the treatment of “hysteria”– a catch-all diagnosis for the female condition.
