Summary
Romantic comedy starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy, based loosely on the life of Joseph Mortimer Granville, the man who invented a somewhat unusual device for treating female hysteria. The film is set at the end of the 19th century, when an official medical technique for the treatment of female hysteria included 'massage of the pelvic area'. Dr Robert Dalrymple (Jonathan Pryce) has set up a surprisingly successful practice specialising in the treatment. Dashing young doctor Mortimer Granville (Dancy) joins the firm and proves particularly popular with the women who go there to have their hysteria alleviated. Mortimer also proves popular with Dalrymple's two daughters, Charlotte (Gyllenhaal) and Emily (Felicity Jones), who compete for his affection. Which one of the girls will he choose? And what is the device he has in mind for revolutionising the treatment of female hysteria?
