Director Tanya Wexler says that her new movie Hysteria, which stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy, is a deliciously easy sell at dinner parties. “It’s a romantic comedy about the invention of the vibrator in Victorian England,” says Wexler of the prim-meets-pleasure juxtaposition. “And people always laugh.” Dancy plays an earnest young doctor charged with stimulating away women’s blues, or “hysteria” as it was then known. He meets his match in Gyllenhaal’s character, a feminist who calls bollocks on medicine’s catch-all diagnosis for her gender’s dissatisfaction.
“We keep calling it the thinking woman’s romantic comedy,” says Wexler, “but it’s supposed to be fun. A lot of people ask what’s the message in the movie? It’s supposed to be fun. It doesn’t take a doctor to do it.” Determined to bring light-heartedness to the set, Wexler gifted every arriving cast and crew member with a vibrator. “You could tell some of the crew guys were confused about what to do with it,” she says with a laugh. “I told them to give it to their wives.”
Hysteria screens at next week’s Tribeca Film Festival and opens in select theaters on May 18.

And it’s another girl for Maggie Gyllenhaal.
The actress is expecting a second daughter later this year. She’ll join big sister Ramona, 5.
“I’m so pregnant,” says Gyllenhaal, 34, while promoting her May release Hysteria. “This is a great, loose, black outfit — I had to take my shoes off.”
Gyllenhaal attended various premieres while secretly expecting her second child, not an easy feat for her.
“I find it difficult to pretend you’re not pregnant, which I had to do. I didn’t let anyone know until three and a half months this time. I went to film festivals. I’m throwing up in the bathroom and having to keep pretzels in my purse, and having to fit into dresses,” she says.
Gyllenhaal and hubby Peter Sarsgaard don’t plan on selling any baby photos, and Gyllenhaal won’t reveal her due date to preserve her privacy and not tip off the press.
“I hope they don’t make an issue of it this time,” says Gyllenhaal. “I have to think about that stuff.”

Many American descend from a dense soups of European ethnicities; we could call them mutts, with ancestral roots across every country in Europe. Actors Maggie Gyllenhaal and Robert Downey, Jr. are textbook examples of Americans with a rich tapestry of European immigrant stories making up their family trees. We delve in to their deep American roots in early colonial communities, and we meet their Eastern European Jewish ancestors, who share almost identical migration stories From the Mayflower to Ellis Island, we journey through centuries of immigration that shaped and built our melting pot nation.
