Sober biopic about controversial sex researcher Alfred Kinsey (Liam Neeson), chronicling his life from his strict Methodist upbringing, to an obscure post teaching biology, to the publication of his landmark study on human sexual behavior in 1948 and his subsequent fall from grace during the 1950s. The movie will generate strong reactions from both those who admire Kinsey as a crusader and those who consider him a degenerate and blame him for igniting the sexual revolution by jettisoning traditional morality and redefining societal mores. Though many viewers will find much of the film offensive, writer-director Bill Condon takes a serious approach to his subject, painting Kinsey in neither overly heroic nor villainous shades. A relativistic view of sexual morality, explicit sexual images, including graphic straight and gay sexual encounters, full frontal nudity, several masturbation scenes, candid sexual discussions and recurring rough language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
