Kinsey movie review

You’ll be shouting “I’m normal! I’m normal!” after seeing Kinsey, because every sexual practice seems to be OK. The film is based on the life of Alfred Kinsey (Liam Neeson), the American researcher famous for his studies on sex and his 1948 bestseller, Sexual Behavior in the Human Male. When his wife (Laura Linney) has sexual problems, they find it difficult to get good help, so he starts teaching a course on marriage and sexuality.
Kinsey and his staff later conduct 18,000 interviews on sexual behaviour. What’s amazing about this film is that it shows how backward sexual understanding was at the time, and how a lot of basic information written about in Cleo magazine such as female orgasms were first researched and taught to the masses by Kinsey.
