Storyline

Biopic of Temple Grandin, an autistic woman who overcame the limitations imposed on her by her condition to become a Ph.D. and expert in the field of animal husbandry. She developed an interest in cattle early in life while spending time at her Aunt and Uncle's ranch. She did not speak until age four and had difficulty right through high school, mostly in dealing with people. Her mother was very supportive as were some of her teachers. She is noted for creating her 'hug box', widely recognized today as a way of relieving stress in autistic children, and her humane design for the treatment of cattle in processing plants, which have been the subject of several books and won an award from PETA. Today, she is a professor at Colorado State University and well-known speaker on autism and animal handling. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

The small rocket that Professor Carlock, the science teacher, launches to celebrate Temple Grandin's success with the "perspective" room is a model of the "Little Joe II" which in 1962 was in the fabrication stage. The details needed would not have been available for modeling. The little Joe II's first test flight wasn't for another year still. Also, the size and configuration of the model rocket and it's motor are too advanced for that time period. It wouldn't be until 1970 that a model of that size would be viable. See more »

This movie is amazing
7 February 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Don't miss this movie. You will be glad you saw it. It does a great job of letting you see the world through the eyes of Temple Grandin.

I've seen the real Temple in documentaries and such several times, and although Claire is too good looking - she does a great job of capturing what it is like to be Temple.

The movie is intense and I almost felt like I was experiencing the world the way Temple would. Congratulations to the writers and director.

Temple is a brave and heroic figure and this movie will leave you spiritually uplifted and optimistic.
