ON DVD: “Modern Family,” “Katy Perry: Part Of Me” The Indiana Jones Collection, And More!

Hysteria
($45.99 Blu-ray, $30.99 DVD; Sony Pictures Classics)

Out director Tanya Wexler mines some interesting social history—specifically the birth of the vibrator—in this delightful 19th-century period piece. A charming Hugh Dancy plays a young doctor hired by a physician (Jonathan Pryce) to treat mysterious tension in his female clients. (In clinical terms, they weren’t getting off.) Maggie Gyllenhaal does a solid job as a liberated love interest and Rupert Everett proves he’s best when others write his lines for him as Dancy’s well-to-do (and probably gay) inventor friend. Extras include a commentary, Q&A with the director and stars, deleted scenes and a documentary about the sexual aid that started it all.

      How did everyone feel about Modern Family season 3? It seemed a little blah to me…
