I couldn’t resist the pun. It looks like one of my favorite actresses, Maggie Gyllenhaal, is filming a movie titled Hysteria, about the invention of the electric vibrator to treat women for the medical-condition-of-the-time, hysteria. According to an article in the Guardian, the film will also star Hugh Dancy, Rupert Everett and Gemma Jones. I’m particularly interested to see the movie as the article says that it’s supposed to reflect one of the screenwriter’s “appreciation of British comedy and of Monty Python in particular.” Can’t wait.
