The film Temple Grandin paints a picture of a young woman's perseverance and determination while struggling with the isolating challenges of autism at a time when it was still quite unknown. The film chronicles Temple's early diagnosis; her turbulent growth and development during her school years; the enduring support she received from her mother (Julia Ormond), aunt (Catherine O'Hara) and her science teacher (David Strathairn); and her emergence as a woman with an innate sensitivity and understanding of animal behaviour.

I had never heard of Temple Grandin before until watching a segment on TV show "Landline", and wondered why? This amazing woman who has autism changed the way cattle were handled in sale yards and abattoirs, to more humane methods. Many cattle farms around the world follow her techniques. The movie follows her life from childhood - a truly inspiring, heartbreaking, touching story.
Temple Grandin was named as one of 100 most influential people of our time. Yet another wonderful
performance by Claire Danes. Well worth a watch!

Claire Danes does a brilliant portrayal of Temple Grandin. As a high-functioning autistic, she is able to express succinctly what people on the spectrum are experiencing. Whether or not you know who she is, this movie is an inspiration, a wonderful illustration of the power of determination and positive thinking. There's plenty of humour too: it's impossible not to laugh out loud. But a lump in the throat is also likely, and perhaps an interest in her life's work on cattle handling. Enjoyable and informative.
