Review for Hysteria R Comedy 1:39
by  John Thielking

Hysteria chronicles the life of a young Dr. Mortimer Granville (Hugh Dancy) who is trying to make his mark on the world in the 1880's with talk of revolutionizing medicine using the latest science that indicates that germs are the cause of disease, but his bosses at various hospitals where he is employed will have nothing of it. Eventually he finds a Dr. Dalrymple (Johnathan Pryce) who is treating women diagnosed with Hysteria using genital stimulation. The young Dr. Granville's hand proves to be so stimulating for most women who come through the clinic that soon the doctor's appointment book is full.  Unfortunately, Dr. Granville soon gets a bad case of carpal tunnel syndrome and is forced to retire from that part of the business. The inventor he lives with, however, has something up his sleeve that just might save the day. Five stars.

This movie ranks as nonviolent because it has only 5 violent scenes.  These include: a woman imagines a murder scene while talking to someone, there is a story of someone's parents dieing in an epidemic, a woman runs into a man while riding her bike, a woman gets beat up and a woman slaps a man.

The previews include two nonviolent commercials and nonviolent previews for Hyde Park On Hudson, The Intouchables, Lola Versus and To Rome With Love.
