Hysteria

Who would have thought that a pic about the advent of the world's first electric vibrator could (or should) be turned into a lightweight romantic comedy? Hugh Dancy (King Arthur) and Maggie Gyllenhaal (Secretary) have fun as the straitlaced Victorian doctor and the spirited feminist at the center of it all. The film contains a couple of serious speeches about female liberation and medical quackery, but it's mostly demure jokes about masturbation and meet-cute romance. 100 minutes R.
