Hysteria

London, 1880. Mortimer Granville, a dedicated and forward-thinking young doctor, is struggling to establish his career. While Granville preaches sanitation and germ theory, the old guard of doctors clinging to leeches and hacksaws, scoff at his upstart ideas, and show him the door. Granville's fortunes change when he arrives for an interview at the well-appointed private offices of Dr. Dalrymple, London's leading specialist in women's medicine.

Something is abuzz in Victorian-era London. Proper upper-class ladies have been seen entering the establishment of Dr. Robert Dalrymple (Jonathan Pryce) in a state of nervous agitation and emerging, 30 minutes later, flushed with relief. The good doctor’s radical massage techniques are said to be particularly efficacious in fighting hysteria, the common women’s complaint believed to stem from an overactive uterus. There are even rumors that the handsome young assistant, Dr. Mortimer Granville (Hugh Dancy), has been experimenting with an electric massage machine.
