Let's talk about sex
If you have an aversion to blunt talk about sex you may not like Kinsey. This frank, well done story of the man who first dared to study sex as a science AND publish the results, is no nonsense and honest. Liam Nelson, Laura Linney and Peter Sarsgaard shine as the main characters of this film. Al Kinsey approached sex and human sexuality as a science. This is the story of his struggle to be treated as a scientist, and get respect and funding for his work. His efforts to link the scientific with sociological were way before their time .... though his work is probably part of the reason we view sex the way we do today.
