A romantic comedy wrapped around the surprising story of the first electro-mechanical vibrator, invented by happenstance at a time when the very peak of Victorian prudishness coincided with the dawn of the electrical age.

“Hysteria” is a tale of a cautious man (Dancy) and a liberated woman (Gyllenhaal) brought together by the wonders of friction.
