"The performances are spot on, and I especially like the spunky Gyllenhaal?" - Chicago Sun-Times
"Despite its titillating subject matter, Hysteria is only mildly stimulating. The final third of the story meanders during a tedious trial and clumsy speechifying" - USA Today
"Director Tanya Wexler plays things broadly at times, but "Hysteria" has good fun with history while coming off far more wholesome than salacious" - Detroit News
