Three sentence movie reviews: Hysteria

 In Three Sentence Movie Reviews


This movie is clever in that way that women–for most of history viewed as nothing more than chattel–have had to be clever in that it seems to be a story about a man inventing an ingenious device and finding success and love, but which also tells us the story of women lining up for a “treatment” that I suspect most of them knew did nothing for their diagnosis of hysteria, but was beneficial none the less. Great performances all around.   This is a light and funny film best taken with a glass of wine and some chocolate after a long hard day of being female.

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home.

    I saw this movie a while ago and was taken with Hugh Dancy! So much that I thought I, too, should have sufferings of Hysteria!

    As an aside, anytime a woman, historically had any ill mood, she was either shipped off to the sanitarium or bled by the leeches, so this was a “pleasant” new treatment! Wink!

    I can’t believe they made a movie of this topic! I love it. Looks like it has a great cast.
