Giveaway - Hysteria film passes

I have a little something to give to readers.  Hopscotch Films has provided me with three double passes to the the new release film "Hysteria".

It looks like fun!  Here's the blurb:

"Based on true events, in 1880 London, the handsome young Dr Mortimer Granville (Hugh Dancy), a believer in modern medical theories, lands a position as the assistant to society doctor Robert Dalrymple.  Dalrymple is a specialist in the female ailment "hysteria" - a catch-all diagnosis that seems to be affecting half of England's women!  Their treatment involves a literal hands-on method, and demand becomes so great that Dalrymple and Mortimer cannot keep up with 'curing' women.  To keep Mortimer working, Dalrymple promises him his business, and marriage to his beautiful, young daughter.  But when Mortimer falls for Dalymple's older and unconventional daughter Charlotte (Maggie Gyllenhaal), his future looks doubtful.  In desperation, he invents a machine that will at least solve his medical challenges - the world's first vibrator.  In the delightful spirit of Calendar Girls, Hysteria takes a rather remarkable and daring true story and turns it into a gentle, warm-hearted comedy."

You can view the trailer here.

The passes are complimentary in-season passes for cinemas in Australia.  Thank you Hopscotch Films!

To win, please leave a comment below telling me in 25 words or less the one thing you wish you had invented.  Entries close this Friday, 20 July at 5pm.  Names will be randomly drawn and I'll be in contact regarding delivery.

I'll be offering something for overseas readers soon...stay tuned!


  1. The plastic bag. Those things are everywhere. Even a fraction of a cent per bags of royalties and you'd be fantastically wealthy. And then I would have to use that money to invent a version of it that wouldn't screw up the environment.
