Hysteria is a movie about vibrators. Specifically, it’s about how they went from being patented medical devices (used in the treatment of hysteria) to something that people actually connected with fun. And as it turns out, Hollywood types aren’t all so liberal. Turns out many of them were a wee bit uncomfortable with the whole thing, and to loosen them up director Tanya Wexler just went with a bit of exposure therapy. She filled the set with vibrators, basically, is what we are saying.

More about that and other TIFF encounters in the gallery above.
