Kinsey is a portrait of researcher Alfred Kinsey, driven to uncover the most private secrets of a nation. What begins for Kinsey as a scientific endeavor soon takes on an intensely personal relevance, ultimately becoming an unexpected journey into the mystery of human behavior. Liam Neeson stars as Kinsey, who in 1948 irrevocably changed American culture with his book Sexual Behavior in the Human Male. Interviewing thousands of people about the most intimate aspects of their lives, Kinsey lifted the weight of secrecy and shame from a society in which sexual practices were mostly hidden. His work sparked one of the most intense cultural debates of the past century, a debate that rages on today. Using the technique of his own famous sex interviews, Kinsey recounts the scientist’s extraordinary journey from obscurity to global fame.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's partly a scientific brief, partly a song of sex, and it's enormously enjoyable.
Fresh: It's a new Neeson as Dr. Alfred Kinsey, all spiky-haired and harried, and he's enormously appealing in the role.
Fresh: The great thing about Kinsey is the triumphant way it entertains, informs and electrifies us with the highest values of traditional cinema while opening our hearts and minds with the liberating potential of human diversity.
Fresh: A convincing picture of an America semiconsciously cowered in fear and ignorance about sexuality.
The movie of sexual understanding.
At first you see this movie and think, "okay, how stupid", but it will really opens your eyes"in a private way" to understanding yourself and the sexual world around us. They should show this to 9th graders, they would be alot less confused for the rest of their lives.
An interesting dramatization of Dr. Kinsey's life and most famous work. Not for the sexually-embarrassed for uncomfortable, while it shows no truly graphic sexual material it does bring up very controversial (both ethically and morally) subject matter in one of its later scenes that will make anyone cringe if not cry.
The film was an interesting depiction of Dr. Alfred Kinsey. Particular attention to detail was nice.
