"Kinsey" is a fictionalized account on the career of Dr. Alfred Kinsey who began his career by studying the reproductive cycle of insects. As his reputation grew as an educator, he gets married and discovers one of the few problems of the early 20th Century America regarding attitudes towards sexuality. By the 1930's Kinsey began to interview men on their sexual experiences after the onset of puberty. As the 1940's came to a close, by 1948 Dr. Kinsey had written two books on human sexual behavior that cemented his reputation in his later years. He toured extensively across many American universities to massive crowds in 1949 alone. By the 1950's Kinsey was working with a larger staff to establish an institute for studying human sexuality. In 1950 Dr. Kinsey won an important court case against U.S. Customs regarding the importation of sexual materials from other countries. Three years after winning that important court case Kinsey and his team at the University of Indiana established the Kinsey Institute. Some of what happened during this time period made it into the film to show how many challenges Kinsey had to overcome for the sake of research. Over the next seven years Kinsey and his team worked tirelessly in doing studies and taking personal interviews to help with the Institute's research and development of new theories. By early 1960's at the film's conclusion, Dr. Kinsey and his wife were walking in a forest outside of San Francisco, California discussing if the research was worth it during their marriage. He commented to her that with the start of the new decade there will be more research that will help not only benefit the institute, but the understanding of human behavior in society as a whole for future generations. Where the film was a fictional account of the life and career of Dr. Kinsey, it proves that art reflects life.
