Biography / Drama
Plot Outline:
A look at the life of Alfred Kinsey (Neeson), a pioneer in the area of human sexuality research, whose 1948 publication “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male” was one of the first recorded works that saw science address sexual behavior.
If such a man was my father, I would be very unpleasant. I don’t deny having conversation about sexual issues among the family, but he, Alfred Kinsey, is talking about it too much, I mean, he is very direct and he also has neither delicacy nor grace.
Actually the main reason that I watched this film is to see Luke Macfarlane as Bruce Kinsey, but he only appeared a few minuites and a few lines. In the deleted scene, there was a scene he was swimming.
The historical background of this film is in late 40’s and early 50’s and was strongly influenced by Christianity. I think many people who is living now never thought about such a practiced asceticism situation.
Anyway in this film, Alfred Kinsey is written as a man who is a little strange but research ardor though, real himself was a bit different from normal person.
