the film: Kinsey
This red carpet event kicks off with KINSEY a remarkable star-studded, Hollywood film about Alfred Kinsey, a man who was once considered among the most dangerous figures in post-war America. He paved the way for the sexual revolution with his landmark studies of sexual behaviour; a biologist, he put human sexuality – then seen almost exclusively as a matter of morality – under the microscope with scientific objectivity and a firm belief in the liberating the potential of human diversity. His work sparked one of the most intense cultural debates of the past century – a debate that rages on today.
Roger Ebert says “Kinsey is likely to be the best-received biopic since A Beautiful Mind. Liam Neeson gives an Oscar-worthy performance as the sex researcher who began by collecting a million moths and then moved from etymology to the bedroom and became obsessed with collecting sexual histories. Laura Linney plays the student who becomes his wife and calm, wise companion as his monomania grows.” The movie also stars Chris O'Donnell, Peter Sarsgaard, Timothy Hutton, John Lithgow, Oliver Platt and Tim Curry.
This screening is a pre-national release of the film.
