About this title

Synopsis:

The official companion to the new fall 2004 release from Fox Searchlight, written and directed by Academy Award-winner Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, Chicago) and starring Liam Neeson (Schindler's List), explores the life of the pioneer of human sexuality research, Alfred Kinsey.

Spanning six decades from his childhood in the early 1900s to his death in 1956, the film turns the microscope on the man whose landmark studies on the sexual behaviors of the common man rocked a nation. The interviewer of tens of thousands, Kinsey subjected his own life and that of his researchers to the same type of analysis that produced his 1948 bestselling book Sexual Behavior in the Human Male. But while the Kinsey team's focus was predominantly outward, perhaps what they learned about themselves was as great as that which they taught their country.

In addition to Liam Neeson, the cast includes Laura Linney (You Can Count on Me, Love Actually, Mystic River) as Clara Kinsey, Chris O'Donnell (Scent of a Woman, Batman & Robin) as Wardell Pomeroy, Peter Sarsgaard, Timothy Hutton, John Lithgow, Oliver Platt, and Tim Curry.

The illustrated book includes the complete screenplay, an exclusive introduction by writer/director Bill Condon, extracts from histories and biographies of the period, film stills and complete cast and crew credits. 150 color photos.

About the Author:

Dreamgirls is directed by Bill Condon from a screenplay he adapted from the stage musical's original book by Tom Eyen. Condon (Oscar® winner for his screenplay for Gods and Monsters, which he also directed) received another Oscar® nomination for his screenplay adaptation of Chicago. He more recently wrote and directed Kinsey.

David James's photographs previously appeared in the moviebooks of Memoirs of a Geisha, Chicago, and Saving Private Ryan.
