Redgrave[edit]

Please add Lynn Redgrave to the list of actors in the film. She is the lesbian woman in the final scene thanking Kinsey for his work. Thanks 98.207.230.186 (talk) 19:17, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

I have updated the Cast section to show Lynn Redgrave as Final Interview Subject. Senator2029 (talk) 11:00, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Kinsey movie.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Kinsey movie.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Reception[edit]

This film has a list of awards and nominations, but what about a reception section? 68.153.29.23 (talk) 00:45, 4 November 2009 (UTC)


Plot Description[edit]

I realize this film has been out for a while, but I would like to ask if someone, if not the author who originally wrote the plot outline for this movie here, could expand upon the plot description? Additional information about the history, production, etc. of this movie would be helpful too. I often come to wikipedia for further information for films, books, etc. and was disappointed in the lack of information provided for this movie.

I am new with my account here, so please feel free to let me know if I have made a mistake in my post here.

Hi, Jen! Welcome to Wikipedia. :) You're right that this article does not have very much meat. When you say plot description, I assume you mean sections like "Production" and "Release"? I'm not able to develop the article overnight, but if you want reviews, there are 40 here. Also, this particular Google Books Search can also provide some excerpts that will be useful reading. It also looks like this book was the "official companion" to the film, if you are willing to buy a book. I wish the Wikipedia article was more helpful, like American Beauty (film), for example.

Erik, thank you. That was kind of you to take the time and effort here. I did look at all the links and yes, exactly what I meant here for "Kinsey" as in "American Beauty". I felt the movie was important enough to warrant that kind of effort. Thanks, Jen Jnmckm444 (talk) 18:35, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
