This is a must-see movie! If you want to gain an understanding of what autism feels like and what can be accomplished with support and understanding,watch this move.
It doesn’t take long to see that Temple Grandin,the main character in this eponymous HBO movie,is,well,different–she (in the person of Claire Danes,who plays her) tells us before the credits start that she’s “not like other people.”But “different”is not “less.”Indeed,Grandin,who is now in her 60s,has accomplished a good deal more than a great many “normal”folks,let alone others afflicted with the autism that Grandin overcame on her way to earning a doctorate and becoming a bestselling author and a pioneer in the humane treatment of livestock.
