A look at the life of Alfred Kinsey, a pioneer in the area of human sexuality research, whose 1948 publication "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" was one of the first recorded works that saw science address sexual behavior.
An aged, retired Sherlock Holmes deals with early dementia as he tries to remember both his final case and a mysterious woman whose memory haunts him. He also befriends a fan, the young son of his housekeeper, who wants him to work again.
A dramatic thriller based on real events that reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century's most fiercely debated organization.

This making of documentary features footage from the film and on the set, interviews, stills of James Whale, his paintings, and trailers for the Whale directed Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein.
Gloria Stuart, who had appeared in The Old Dark House, tells how Whale helped her cope with the upstaging of Claude Rains as The Invisible Man, and there is an acknowledgment of Whale's gay sensibility in his best horror films which combine terror and comedy.
It is also pointed out that the novel Father of Frankenstein by Christopher Bram, on which Gods and Monsters is based, tells a fictionalised account of the 1957 death of Whale. Whale was found dead in his swimming pool, presumably a suicide since his health had suffered from a series of strokes, but the truth remains a mystery.
