Kinsey Movie Synopsis

An exploration of the life of the pioneer of human sexuality research, Alfred Kinsey (Liam Neeson). Spanning six decades from his childhood in the early 1900s to his death in 1956, the film turns the microscope on the man whose landmark studies on the sexual behaviors of the common man rocked a nation.

The interviewer of tens of thousands, Kinsey subjected his own life and that of his researchers to the same type of analysis that produced his 1948 best-selling book "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male." But while the Kinsey team's focus was predominantly outward, perhaps what they learned about themselves was as great as that which they taught their country.

One of the best movies based on biography. It seams that the script and directing are perfectly balancing the facts with the "artistic truth"

MUST SEE for All adults who engage in sexual activity . Learn something about the humankind.

Great movie! Good script and well acted. It is good to see a real hero immortalized in film.
