I was very disappointed in Hysteria, a movie starring Maggie Gyllenhaal about the invention of the vibrator in 19th Century London.

I'm fascinated by this era, and the history of the medico-psychiatric treatment neurotic and repressed women, in particular, the practice of bringing women to orgasm in a clinical setting...

This movie was comical and took too light a touch. In spite of the subject matter, it seemed like a PG-13 made-for-TV-movie. I didn't enjoy it at all.
