Its never to late to have a role model.
I stumbled upon this movie in Netflix, unaware of what the story was about, and who Temple Grandin is. So many people have said it much better than I ever can. This was just one of those wonderful gems that you stumble upon unknowingly, and walk away at completely uplifted as a viewer. Clair Danes did a marvelous job in her portrayal, and the overall production was excellent. I very much appreciated how they brought the viewer in to the film, allowing us to see how Temple see's. I'm now off to learn more about from Temple Grandin, by ordering "Emergence Labeled Autistic"...It has been quite awhile for me, but I think I have a new role model.

This review is from: Temple Grandin (Amazon Instant Video) This is an inspiring story, and Claire Danes' performance as Temple Grandin is terrific. I missed this when it came through the theaters, so I was very happy to see it was available for instant play at Amazon.com. The prevalence of autism has been widely publicized, but without a personal connection to someone who lives with autism, one cannot really understand how people with autism function. Through this movie I became "friends" with Temple Grandin and therefore began to understand something of how she lives. I have deep respect for her!

Wonderful For Family and Friends
This review is from: Temple Grandin (DVD) I am a Mom to 2 with Aspergers. I bought this movie to share with our church members who then shared it with the kids that my kids attend church with. The movie was a way for others to see my children in a different way/ The kids who watched it where able to see that things that my kids do are Not to meant to hurt them, etc. It helps them understand things better and it is not just a Mom taking up for her children.

My wife who is a Speech Pathologist and works with autistic childrenwanted to watch this film and I just happened to catch it with her. Forme, it magnified someone who was able to overcome obstacles that manypeople would never be able to or refuse to do. I am not familiar withClaire Danes or autism in general, but I was captivated to get aglimpse of how an autistic person sees the world around them. Assomeone who finds solace in solitude more than social situations, Icould empathize with Temple to a degree and told my wife thatoccasional solitude is my own "squeeze machine", which she acknowledgedwith a nod of her head. If you want to see a film that is much morethan just a glimpse at autism, I highly recommend it to anyone who hastrouble moving beyond their social limitations and accomplish somethingthat they are uniquely qualified to do.

If you want, you can.
The film is about a woman with autism, who, with the help ofunderstanding family, friends and inner drive, can make a significantcontribution to the world in order to understand autism. With thisfeature I think it can be said it has an educational side. To be honestthe first thing that is needed to say Temple Grandin is a different andgreat movie.Before I watch this movie, I thought it is a boring and it is not worthwatching. But then I watched it with my teacher's recommendation. Andif you are trying to find a different movie, it will be best choice foryou. The movie manages to catch your attention from the beginning tothe end with its great pictures and sounds and with great and excellentperformance of Claire Danes. Despite of the fact that she is anautistic and there are people that don't believe she can managesomething in life, she can manage to do something and she can do whatshe want to do.I do not have Autism in my family, and still managed to capture me,educate me, and touch me emotionally. I cannot imagine how this moviewould touch you if you do have Autism in your family. There is a thingthat I want to add, this movie touch the emotion with its topic andespecially music. With this feature it must be separated from theothers. At the end of the film there is a surprising real for me. Sothat, while I was watching I didn't think that is a real story and llearned that it is a real story about an autistic person. To sum up itis a good and great movie that is needed to watch. I strongly adviseyou to watch it.

What a Mess
This review is from: Temple Grandin (DVD) I purchased this dvd for my sister as a birthday gift. When I opened up the package and looked at the dvd case I was in shock somebody actually sold this to me. The dvd itself was fine but the case was ripped and broken into several pieces. I was very disappointed because it was a gift, but my sister was nice and took the dvd and threw away the mess of what used to be a case.I would have never bought this had I known it was going to be such a mess.

Dont Let This Pass You By
This film is engrossing, funny, beautifully acted, and very moving, whether autism touches your life or not. Temple Grandin is one of my heroes; she has helped so many by being our tour guide into the autistic mind. She also single-handedly revolutionized how livestock are treated in this country. Her innovations in handling livestock more humanely are tremendous. This film does an excellent job of fitting a lot of information in, while holding your interest. The cast is excellent. Make time for this one, you won't regret it.

excellent autism drama based on a true story
every now and then there's comes along a movie based on a true storywhich surprises us and this is definitely one of them. Not a patch onthe 'Rain Man', this really does get to the heart of trying to explainand understand autism within a movie without glorifying mocking or inany way misrepresenting the condition that autism is.those among us have no first hand experience of autism and to tell thestory such as this I find remarkable. Temple Grardin is clearly and hasbeen a remarkable lady who has given a great deal to mankind and to thefield of science.the field focuses on her determination to have the technique for theslaughter of cattle in slaughter houses accepted and of her struggle tobe taken seriously with her autism condition. The film is a special oneand ironically it is one which appears on low budget produced initiallyfor television via HBO.It is no blockbuster and absolutely if you like movie which are perhapsa bit boring but at the same time totally engrossing and tell aninteresting story (but it is far from a documentary) this is a movienot to be missed in any shape or form. Clare Danes is a top actress forthe role.

Temple Grandin a real life cinderella story for an autistic princess
This review is from: Temple Grandin (Amazon Instant Video) I love that this story of a woman named Temple Grandin was actually based on a true life. This movie is entertaining , inspirational, and tugs at the emotions in several ways. Claire daines is magnifiscent for someone who is both brilliantly gifted and also uniquely limited. This is a big stepping stone for autisitc "einsteins" everywhere. I agree that this should be the #1 best rated film on amazon. I have no arguments there. Godbless

A magnificent fact-based film
Claire Danes is superb as Temple Grandin, the animal husbandrist born 1947 in Boston and designer of humane cattle processing plants. This film, released in 2010 by HBO Films, traces Grandin's life from her early years in Boston through 1981, when she spoke at a national conference on autism, the disability she carries in her life. It shows the beginning of her career as a scientist and advocate for autism and humane treatment of farm animals she discusses in her many books on the subject Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals.The HBO made for broadcast film covers Grandin's youth, her years in boarding school and college, her pursuit of bachelor's and master's degrees at Arizona State University, and her early years in the cattle business where she strived to merge humane treatment for animals doomed to be food with solid science and business purposes. This is not a story about a bleeding heart animal lover; in contrast, it tells the story of a solid pragmatist, a scientist that works for better ways to manage animals raised for human food while paying the respect to the animals she believes they deserve. Grandin has gone on to revolutionize the way animals are treated in stockyards and in slaughterhouses, designing facilitiies that are more humane and at the same time more economically efficient.What is best in this film is the way it visualizes Grandin's brain at work. She sees the world in pictures, not in text or imagery. Even though I formerly worked for a state mental health agency that treated, among other things, autistic children, I was never sure exactly what the disability was. This film helped me understand its hold on people and how overstimulation in social situations is one of its more devastating consequences. You see this played out over and over again in the film, where Danes, as Grandin, is consistently at odds with a chaotic world in social situations but is completely in command of the world where she can visualize answers to significant intellectual questions.While I read her profile on Wikipedia, I don't know enough about Grandin to tell if the film is alwasy accurate in what it portrays. If it is, Grandin related more readily, in some respects, to other mammals than people. She learned early in life that the containment crate cattle go into (for branding or shots) calms them; she experimented with this on herself and found it had the same effect on her. This is only one of a couple dozen remarkable discoveries that await the viewer of this incredible film, which brought out my curiosity and interest more than any film I have seen in a very long while.With typically solid HBO production values and wonderful supporting performances from Julia Ormand (as Grandin's mother), David Strathairn (as her prep school science teacher that helped exploit her interest in science), and Catherine O'Hara as a loving relative, Temple Grandin is a knockout. To put it simply, this is one of the most enthralling, interesting, humane and entertaining movies I've seen in 2010 or any other year.HBO uses its resources well when it makes films and this time they have created a masterpiece, one surely deserving of the 7 Emmy award it won including best picture. I'm certain it will win at least half of those including Danes as best actress and whomever was in charge of wardrobe and makeup, as Danes looked remarkably like the real-life Temple Grandin throughout this movie. Buy, rent or borrow this tonight and prepare to go through a door to another world you've never witnessed.

We got this by "accident" from Netflix and the reviews there made me worried that it would be a cheesy animal rights movie. Far from it! This is the best movie I've seen in years with good acting all around and a fascinating look at the life of an autistic young woman. Good art enables us to experience a bit of something that we might not experience otherwise and that is just what this movie does. Its clean and I think conveys good lessons for kids; one reference to sexuality when "experts" think Temple may be self soothing sexually but it's pretty subtle and unfounded. I'm having my kids watch it. Ages 7-13 are very interested though they have lots of questions and the music/filming style make it tense enough that they need reassurance sometimes.

there are no low ratings for this one! and seven EMMYS!
This movie , which is based on a true story is quite a well done affair. The acting is top notch and oscar worthy from Claire Danes. ALthough this was a HBO movie ,she deserved and won a emmy, in fact this one won best drama too! and five other emmys! IT's a great film that deserves every bit of it's acclaim. The supporting cast including David Strathorn and catherine o hara also shine and the actress who plays the mom is outstanding.This movie tells a great story of someone overcoming all odds without being overly sentimental and that's a feat in itself. The direction is flawless and this captures the past quite well. The dvd is well done and the picture looks outstanding. I saw this with a high school class and they were spellbound by this one. There isn't one bad review on this one, not one, not even a three star and for good reason this is truly a quality film. It's a important one to watch , because many of us have terrible preconceptions about AUTISM and this movie goes the distance to show us that the truth is more varied than we can believe. Of course there are low level autistics who can't interact with other people very well, I have been in a school with someone that could only recreate disney movies and never communicate in other way. So this is the story of a higher level person but certainly it's the story of a mothers love too, because without Temples mom , she would have been locked away in a institution. A terrible fate for anyone in the 1950's much less a kid. This is one of those movies everyone should see for a number of reasons. Find those reasons for yourself with this winning film. Hbo outshown the studios with this one.

Terrific Insight into both Humane Animal Handling and Autism - Inspirational and Inspiring.
Temple Grandin is an extraordinary woman who has become a role modelfor the Autistic and an innovator in animal husbandry. When Temple wasfour years old, her doctors told her mother that she should beinstitutionalized; however, her mother disagreed. Before enteringcollege, Temple lived on a cattle ranch where she fell in love withcattle and the business. She struggled with anxiety, and created asqueeze machine to help her fell more comfortable and calm. Whileworking with cattle on the ranch, she learned that cattle have some ofthese feelings as well, so she did research in animal husbandry tocreate a handling machine that would ensure the cattle were comfortablegoing through the chutes. She spent many years researching theequipment and processes involved in treating cattle humanely. Mooingwas one thing that Temple researched because she realized that it meantthe cows were telling us something. Using this information and hervisions, she created a new cattle dipping machine and helped to designslaughter houses that helped to calm and comfort the cattle. Throughher work in animal husbandry and successful career path, she has becomea spokesperson for Autism. She has shown us that despite the struggleswe face in life, we can find ways to succeed if we look hard atourselves and our needs. When Temple created the squeeze machine shefound a way to cope and manage her challenges, she did the same bycreating more humane cattle dips and slaughter houses for cattle. Thisis an educational movie which will show you the challenges and joysthat Autistic people face every day along with a closer look at humaneanimal handling conditions that exist in cattle ranches and slaughterhouses across the country. Temple Grandin is an inspiring andinspirational movie that everyone should see.

Its tremendous and here are some very good reasons for my reasoning...
So much Autism in my family and such a rinse to see it portrayed in arespectful and yet, unhappy and troubled way. Autism is not for theHallmark 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 wereso vital to telling this great, great story.I have A.S. and I will tell you - the moment Temple realigns the unevenwallpaper in her mind - it had me. THAT is the mind of someone outsidethe room of traditional music. This is a great film and Claire Danes isgiving the performance of unbelievable honesty and valor. Bravo toJackson - Brava to Danes.

This review is from: Temple Grandin (DVD) The movie about Dr. Grandin's life is really an eye opener. It's a wonderful true life story! I have SO much admiration, and gratitude for her. She is truly blessed!Dr. Temple gives us first hand insight into Autism. It shows us that we cannot underestimate or discount people with Autism. (I believe this should hold true for any other handicap for that matter.)So many people have learning disabilities, social shortcomings, diminished sensitivities, decreased perceptions, little to no tolerance, and so, so many other problems that handicap them. These people, however, are the so-called 'normal' people.

what an impression this created on me
This review is from: Temple Grandin (DVD) Crossing the Atlantic and clicking on to this movie at 41,000 feet was a gift . It made me see through so many passages of my life from the time I can remember. I had little comfort as a youth trying to get through school.It was very difficult for me to sit down and focus on writing exams. I thought too quickly and couldn't put my thoughts into words. I could talk about everything I studied but I couldn't write about it. it was frustrating and embarassing and humiliating. I did get through it all though and graduated from University with a degree in Finance.I admire the director for his ability to make me understand more about autism. i never understood it until now . Thank you. The main protagonist Temple deserves an award for her talent and courage in performing the way she did with such love in wanting to carry forth the message of this story. I am a great hugger by the way and I know how positive it is to be that way, even though I have been too often called an octopus.I hope to feel as good as I do since I watched the movie for a long time. I am going to help the cause of autism because I watched this movie.Thank you .Albert

This review is from: Temple Grandin (DVD) This movie is an honest portrayal of a high functioning Autistic child/adult. It is very insightful into the mind and expressions of an autistic person. The subject and person is handled with sensitivity and understanding without a hollywood flare.
