Hysteria

Ever wonder how doctors treated female nervous disorders before Xanax? Hugh Dancy plays a 19th-century physician with—how shall we put this?—an overworked arm who seizes on the recent invention of electricity to produce the first electric vibrator. Maggie Gyllenhaal (with Dancy, above) costars in a romantic subplot, and Jonathan Pryce and Rupert Everett lend helpful hands in this ticklish comedy.

The Intouchables

This odd comedy stars film newcomer Omar Sy (Best Actor at the French César Awards) as the irrepressibly optimistic Senegalese caregiver for a wealthy businessman (François Cluzet) crippled in a paragliding accident. Cultures collide and friendships are formed in this buoyant-despite-the-wheelchair story, which is all the more poignant for being pulled from real life.
