The story is really beautifully told and truly uplifting! Claire Danes was not only believable, but she seemed to disappear into the character and she did so with great sensitivity and respect.

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.

One of the very best bio-pics ever made. Danes' wild acting style (viz Homeland) fits this real person's uplifting life perfectly. That someone so limited from birth can achieve such brilliance is surprising and inspiring. The only problem for some people is the fact that cattle slaughtering is featured. One friend of mine, a vegetarian, refused to watch this movie because of the cattle killing. But the movie does NOT promote animal cruelty--just the opposite. Tolerance of people's Differences is the main lesson, but it's NOT preachy.
