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

Trivia

The scenes in which cows appear to be drowning or otherwise in danger were shot not with living cattle but instead with detailed model cows called "stuffies" or an animatronic cow. See more »

Goofs

Temple is shown watching a movie on TV and uses a remote control. This was while she was in grad school, early to mid 1970s. Regular home TV remotes were not available until late 1980s. (There were TV remote controls as early as the 60's, but they emitted ultrasonic tones. Commonly called a "clicker". Temple is shown using a clicker.) See more »

Quotes

Temple Grandin: [voiceover] I've always wanted to understand the gentleness that other people feel by being hugged by their mothers. And now I've made a machine that lets me do that. It feels like a wire gets reconnected. Like something gets repaired.

Life is mysteries and a door will open, just walk through it.
6 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found it wonderful, precious, motivational, makes you feel as if you are a character in the movie. It just pulls you in her mind and makes you discover her thinking also making you wish you could help her. Also shows you in this world life isn't easy an some people are not very nice (as we all know) but out of the hundreds of people is very much ONE person not afraid to help. Temple shows the viewer we can all be scared. Whether you have disabilities, fears, doubts or anything you can imagine you simply can do it, she showed it. Claire Danes you made me believe you were Temple Grandin I applaud you for your dedicated work maybe will see you at the Awards in 2011. Take a Bow (or a Hug Machine) So much more to add but I advise watching & Watch with your heart.

"If I could snap my fingers and become non autistic I would not do so. Autism is part of who I am." - Temple Grandin
