Kinsey is a 2004 biographical film written and directed by Bill Condon. It stars Liam Neeson and Laura Linney. Kinsey tells the story of Alfred Kinsey (Liam Neeson), an early sexual psychology pioneer working at Indiana University. Kinsey's 1948 scientific paper titled "Sexual Behaviour in the Human Male" is considered to be one of the first pieces of research to address the issue. Kinsey's obsession with statistics almost lead him to overlook the emotional elements of human sexual psychology. Nevertheless, Kinsey's rigorous scientific method allowed him to expose the normality of sexually deviant behaviour, which at the time included homosexuality. However, his findings were often divisive and many disagreed violently with them, including his wife (Laura Linney). The film skillfully probes behind Kinsey's erratic and obsessive behaviour to celebrate the true value of his challenge upon the sexually repressive mores of the time. The film was critically acclaimed and Laura Linney received a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her role.
