    Oh. My. God. This will be the best movie ever. I need this movie. The last clip, with Queen Victoria… I actually died.

    I am absolutely thrilled about this movie. I cannot wait to see it!

    Now I want to reread Amanda Quick’s DON’T LOOK BACK, the book that gave me my first glimpse of the actual meaning and treatment of female hysteria.** IIRC, there was an author’s note at the end about said medical disorder. Reading the book, I’d just thought that AQ’s imagination had taken a kinky leap. :)

    **In books, I’d read mentions of a female character suffering from hysteria, but all of a sudden I had a whole new conception about what that might mean. o_O

    Brilliant. I’d heard about a recent play along these lines (In The Next Room) but this looks way more fun. Leave it to a funny, witty British costume pic to take on thousands of years of weird notions. And all the lovely hats!

    I mean, don’t you hate it when your internal organs just go wandering off on their own, bullying other body parts and running up the credit cards and stuff? Good thing those pioneering doctors got so inspired by their repetitive stress injury ;)

    The entire time I was watching this, I kept thinking, “Wow, this is a really elaborate parody trailer.” 

    I had to dash over to IMDB to make the happy confirmation that this movie really exists.  :-)

    OMG!!! I took a class on the psychology of sex my freshman year of college, and I remember being told about this and almost falling out of my chair. HILARIOUS!

    Allow me to introduce a Victorian sex factoid, courtesy the extremely well-respected historian Lesley Hall:

    I have 30 coupons for TIFF just waiting for the final programme next week, and this film is at the top of my wish list.  It looks SO awesome.

    @ev: mine was husband92. Maybe a little too long?

    Oh Sarah, thank you for this one!

    Karen says:

    NOW.  I want to see it now!  With the US prudish ways, I’ll probably have to wait until it comes out on DVD.  HMPH!  Or….a great excuse to go to England when it comes out.  :D

    red82 – Oh, yes!

    Delicious.  The actors must have had a blast making this.

    @cayenne – I’m so jealous!  After I saw the trailer I used all my google-fu to try to find out when it would be in theaters, and all I can find is that it will premeire at TIFF (Toronto International Film Fest, Sept 8-18)

    I don’t know enough about the movie business. I’m hoping it will either go wider to theaters or to DVD after that.  I found it on IMDB, but no release date.

    ROTFLMAO… OMG I have too see this movie… I want some HYSTERIA This weekend for sure….

    I have never been to our TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) But you can bet I am going to get tickets for this one.. Anyone want to come to Toronto to join me?????

    I have to see that film. Aside from the awesome premise, it has a boatload of my favorite actors in it. My city has a decent independent film scene, so it might actually make it to one of the art-house theatres here.

    *sigh* Sometimes I hate living in a country that is so uptight about sex. I think I should buy a private island (with all that spare cash I have lying around) and start my own country. It could be my first step towards my ultimate goal: global domination! Feel free to read that however you wish. I know my dirty mind automatically went to leather and chains.

    Kelly says:

    Sheridan Smith is in it! I’m sold. :)

    Aurora says:

    Wow, this will be an actual film? What genre will it go under I wonder? And might it be released in US?

    Captcha: price69, hopefully it won’t cost 69 dollars to attend.

    Vicki says:

    OMG, yes, I would see this movie. Is it real? Will it come (so to speak) to a theater in my small conservative town? Hope so.

    and captchas today are being appropriate –  mine is french 55

    Sorry.  Got carried away there.  I can hardly wait.  And I mean that.

    This reminds of that crazy Matthew Broderick movie about a health farm for the wealthy in Michigan run by Dr Kellog that featured some sort of masturbatory treatment for women, among other crazy things.  Kellog was a real person (founded the cereal company) but I don’t know that movie was at all accurate.  It was called The Road to Wellville.

    @ Laughingrat – thanks for the historical link (although I think the movie version of reality sounds like more fun).

    @ ms bookjunkie – I just read her latest – Quicksilver – and it also features a “treatment” for hysteria.  I thought I’d read that in an earlier AQ too.

    @Klio—-It’s on Broadway!

    However, the description markets it more like a drama rather than a comedy and the characters and different.

    Kathleen O says:

    Someone mentioned about reading this in Quicksilver.. and I too had knew I read it about Woman’s Hysteria somewhere.. thanks for the memory jog…

    Wow – I would love to see this if it ever makes it to theaters but don’t have any local GFs to go with – and I’m thinking the hubster will def say NO! Oh, well. . . . .there’s always the DVD.

    …and Cleo – I thought Road to Wellville was hysterical and I believe fairly accurate.
