Temple Grandin



I highly recommend "Temple Grandin" on HBO.

It will win awards. Aside from that it is a great study of autism and of a woman who overcame it to become the top in her field, a PhD, a scientist and an inventor.

First published 2-8-2010 (the movie earned both Emmy and Ace Awards including Best Actress)

I watched this movie when it first came out. I think it is Claire Danes best work to date. As for Temple Grandin, she's a real hoot.

Wow that is amazing. I will be watching this. I find it interesting because I have some family members that are autistic. People don't always understand that they can be functional, smart, and really do something great with their lives.

Looks like a very old school country western. I think autism is a messed up thing to make a show about, but I'll watch it if I see it on TV.

I will definitely put this on my DVR list! I find it rewarding and motivating to see people push past their personal "limits" to achieve success.

I WILL BE SURE TO TUNE IN AND WATCH THIS. WHAT PEOPLE DO NOT REALIZE IS THAT ANYONE WITH Autism CAN USE IT AS A GIFT. I PERSONALLY THINK THAT AUTISTIC PEOPLE IN PARTICULAR ARE NOT CRAZY NOR LACKING IT JUST TAKES ALOT OF PATIENCE TO DEAL WITH THEM. I USED TO BABY-SIT AN AUTISTIC LITTLE BOY AND HE WAS THE KINDEST PERSON I'VE EVER MET, JUST BOUNCY THAT'S ABOUT IT. BUT HE IS VERY SMART, TALENTED, AND HUMBLE. THEY ARE GREAT PEOPLE TO BE AROUND, AND TO ME THEY ARE PERFECTLY NORMAL.

Temple Grandin is an influential person because she didn't let her condition bring her down. She fought through it and became one of the 25 "Heroes" of 2010. Her autism made her who she is today..

This is a truly inspiring story of a woman not letting her condition stand in the way of her life..it reminds me of my grandfather who was the Oldest living man with Polio disease when he passed away in 2006 at 82. My grandfather lived life to the fullest regardless of his condition. I just hope HBO doesn't ruin her story by driving the series into the ground like they do with so many other series.

I personallu think its amazing because it shows that just because one has a disability and is able to be succesful and make a film about it is inspiring to everyone.

I love stories like this! Doctors thought she should be put in an institution because they didn't know enough about her disease, autism. Now look at her, Ph.D, movies, and books later! It just goes to show that with persistence, like she had, you can achieve anything!
