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 »

Goofs

At the pediatrician's office when Temple is four, her mother claims to be a Harvard graduate. This scene would have taken place in 1952. Although some women attended classes at Harvard as Radcliffe students, they were not given degrees from Harvard until 1963. See more »

It's tremendous and here are some very good reasons for my reasoning...
9 February 2010 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

So much Autism in my family and such a rinse to see it portrayed in a respectful and yet, unhappy and troubled way. Autism is not for the Hallmark Card set - it is not for the After School Special digesters - it is difficult and rife with woe but also filled with newness and, forgive the hyperbole, wonder.

I thought the director and Danes went to important extremes that were so vital to telling this great, great story.

I have A.S. and I will tell you - the moment Temple realigns the uneven wallpaper in her mind - it had me. THAT is the mind of someone outside the room of traditional music. This is a great film and Claire Danes is giving the performance of unbelievable honesty and valor. Bravo to Jackson - Brava to Danes.
