Hysteria | Indy Week


Rated R 95 min. 2012

Despite the subject matter, there's not much to recommend this picture, except perhaps to witness the formidable talents of Maggie Gyllenhaal going to waste. As the daughter of a doctor grown rich from treating sexually frustrated women by inducing them to orgasm, Gyllenhaal flounces, flirts, preaches and punches, doing her best to make this film worth a damn. She's an interesting, intelligent actor, and I look forward to her someday having an opportunity to revisit this period of history by playing someone like Emma Goldman or Margaret Sanger in a better film.
