HYSTERIA, a mischievously inspired romantic comedy set in the late 19th century, is based on the surprising truth of how Mortimer Granville came up with the world’s first electromechanical vibrator in the name of medical science. But the movie in fact is much more about Granville’s romantic interplay with the 2 daughters of Dalrymple, Emily (played by Felicity Jones), who is “daddy’s girl” and to whom Granville gets engaged, and Charlotte (played by Maggie Gyllenhaal), the “rebel” daughter who has set up a social center to help the poor.

Taking place over 24 hours, the story centers on Will Fletcher, a passionate musician, and Eve Fisher, a beautiful, free-spirited woman who works in the local bar.
This film is wonderfully written and beautifully performed. It is very intimate, and revolves around two characters that meet, spend a night getting to know one another, falling in love, revealing their innermost selves, and maybe even saving each other. All of this action takes place against a stunning London backdrop, with some lovely music included. It’s not too heavy, but not too light.
