HBO Films Temple Grandin, DVD

Winner of Five Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Made For Television Movie and Outstanding Lead Actress In A Miniseries Or A Movie, Temple Grandin stars Claire Danes, Julia Ormond, Catherine O'Hara and David Strathairn. Temple Grandin paints a picture of a young woman's perseverance and determination while struggling with the isolating challenges of autism at a time when it was still quite unknown. The film chronicles Temple's early diagnosis; her turbulent growth and development during her school years; the enduring support she received from her mother (Ormond), aunt (O'Hara), and her science teacher (Strathairn); and her emergence as a woman with an innate sensitivity and understanding of animal behavior. Based on a true story.

This film provides not only an inspiring story, but also an excellent view into what it is like (for at least one person) to be autistic.

Outstanding movie. I was uplifted and overwhelmed with joy at the story telling. Though I didn't buy it here (found used one cheaper), if you have the money I recommend getting it. Can open ones eyes to how useful everyone is and how God makes no mistakes in everyone created.

What an incredible movie about an amazing woman. This movie not only gives first hand account of the effect of autism but also over coming against huge odds. It is a story of what can happen when the right input and support is provided, from family (amazing parents and aunt/uncle) and teachers. It is a story of hope and I am so thankful to have watched this movie! I HIGHLY recommend this movie to everyone!
