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 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", a rocket used to test the Apollo capsule as part of the Moon program. (Very similar to, but not the same as, the "Little Joe" rocket used to test the Mercury capsule; also do not confuse with the "Little Joe 2" rocket flight in the Mercury program.) You can see the model Apollo capsule and Apollo escape tower on the top of the rocket. Given Temple's interest in science, she certainly would be familiar with the tests, which were going on at the time and shown on the evening news. See more »

At Temple's boarding school we see Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs on campus. This breed was not brought to the United States until the mid-1980's. See more »

Quotes

Betty Goscowitz: How wonderful that we bumped into each other
Temple Grandin: [thrilled, chuckling] A door opened and I went through it.
Betty Goscowitz: Yes, you did. And I held it.

Overflowing with emotion
6 February 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

That this production is near onto perfect can readily be documented by the votes cast. That it touches intimately on subjects so personal and universal through a story documenting a case of autism can only be appreciated by viewing it. It is an amazing effort on the part of so many persons bringing this story forward so vividly. Maybe Temple was lucky that doors were not kept out of her reach at times of incredible change; maybe her gifts would not have been realized had she not been strong enough to open the doors herself or been strong enough allow others to help. But luck has nothing to do with the quality of this vision shared. This production is something to which all should aspire.
