Augustine Much in the spirit of David Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method” is this impressive dramatization of the relationship of the pioneering neurologist Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot, proponent of the controversial theory of hysteria, and his most famous patient, the young, disturbed kitchen maid of the title. First-time director Alice Winocour avoids stereotypes, and through striking imagery and fine performances humanizes a complex and ambiguous story. (102 min., unrated) (Peter Keough)
