Temple Grandin (2010)

Plot: This is a biography of Temple Grandin, an autistic woman who works as a professor at Colorado State studying Animal Husbandry. It shows her walking through many doors and overcoming many hardships.  [imdb]    [photos]

Review: Temple Grandin, the movie, is an inspiring story, while some parts are seem fictionalized, overall it is inspirational. Claire Danes does a wonderful job play Temple who is constantly troubled, or confused. It is with sympathy and with intellect.

It is a docudrama; it feels educational, but it is fun too. 

Cast: Claire Danes, Julia Ormond, David Strathairn, Catherine O'Hara

Directed by:
Mick Jackson

Written by: Screenplay by Christopher Monger and Merritt Johnson based on the books Emergence by Temple Grandin and Margret Scariano, and the book Thinking in Pictures by Temple Grandin. 

The Visuals:  
Nice use of visuals to show how to think in pictures, and nice work with the cattle photography.

3.5 stars: Nice story. Great performance by Claire Danes
