A well-crafted biopic, with solid performances from Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, and Peter Sarsgaard. It's a pleasure to watch a movie based on real people who hold such radical opinions about sex at such a repressed time in American history. The story avoids all the boring pitfalls of biographic movies. Reminded me of all I disliked about another biopic about a scientific genius, A Beautiful Mind. (West Newton Cinema)
