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

One of the cows was nicknamed The Little Red Cow Who Could by the production team. This cow was the one seen in all the underwater shots (albeit dyed) and in the scene where a cow is shot the little red cow had to go into the room first to encourage the cow that was used in that scene. See more »

Goofs

While Temple was watching a lion documentary, the lion sound effects that were heard when the lioness takes down a wildebeest didn't exist until the 1990's onward. See more »

Quotes

Professor Shanklin: Smells like half the herd signed it first

This movie is amazing
7 February 2010 | by 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.
