movie: sexually speaking

Does anyone know if Kinsey is accurate? I loved it, and it almost seems too good to be wholly accurate, as if they fictionalized parts of it. Parts were slow, but I haven't seen a better movie in months (at least as far back as my Netflix history shows).

Thanks to a line near the end (which Redgrave is that? Lynn?), I'll be humming Too Much In Love to Care from Sunset Blvd for the next day or so.

I got all excited when I saw previews for that movie. I'm glad to hear it's good. Now I'll have to watch it. :-)

I think it was pretty accurate. Little details may have been added. I'm not sure if all the stuff about the love triangle was true or not. I know there was some kind of infidelity and some homosexuality but i don't know if that specific love triangle was added for movie appeal or if that was true. Most of the other stuff i believe was true though. He was sick as a child and had a religious and strict upbringing. He studied gall wasps, etc. I learned some of his stuff in school such as the kinsey scale and i've seen a documentary about his studies.
