Flix Not to Miss: ‘Hysteria’

ARVE Error: id and provider shortcodes attributes are mandatory for old shortcodes. It is recommended to switch to new shortcodes that need only url

When I caught this film on the plane, I didn’t know that the studio had been marketing it as a romantic comedy. (Full-disclosure, I love a good rom-com!) In that vein, I found it wholly enjoyable. Maggie Gyllenhaal oozes intelligence and Hugh Dancy charms. Directed by Tanya Wexler, it’s a film that shows that feminists can have a sense of humor, too. Available for download or DVD at Amazon and iTunes. — KIM CUMMINGS
