KINSEY

Here's another biopic that got rave reviews this fall. Kinsey traces the life story of the sex researcher whose famous "Kinsey Report" in the 1940s not only changed the way Americans thought about sex, but continues to reverberate today.

Plot Summary: Academy Award-winner Bill Condon ("Gods and Monsters," "Chicago") explores 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. (comingsoon.net)
