Even vibrators have an origin story.

Hysteria, a romantic comedy directed by Tanya Wexler about Victorian doctor Joseph Mortimer, stars Hugh Dancy as the medically gifted and Maggie Gyllenhaal as a young woman who catches his eye.

"Pleasure has nothing to do with it, I promise," Dancy promises Gyllenhaal at one point in the trailer before viewers see the events leading up to the invention of the vibrator.

Jonathan Pryce, Rupert Everett and Felicity Jones co-star in the upcoming film, which will make its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival this September, written by Stephen Dyer, Jonah Lisa Dyer and Howard Gensler.
