4.0 out of 5 stars A discomfortable reality Sept. 12 2010
Format:DVD
We are parents of a 16 years old autistic child. This movie is showing masterfully the great difficulties that these people have when dealing with communication and human relationship. Ms. Grandin has had the strong will and the courage to overcome these differences the equivalent of climbing Mont Everest. As parents and those dealing with this, we must thank her for bringing new lights to understand more deeply the people are are affected by this situation (for example thinking in pictures).

As opposed to many others movies and reports on autism, this one is not shy to show the discomfort that people around them are feeling for this kind of disability. For those who are not involved with a autism person you will find that even for a highly functioning person like Ms. Grandin living a normal life (as per our standards) is almost impossible.

Congratulations to Mrs Claire Danes for having played so truthfully

Well Done

5.0 out of 5 stars this movie nails it July 25 2011
By Brenda Pink TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Having worked in the livestock industry for a number of years, I was well acquainted with Grandin's work on animal handling. I'd also had a wonderful opportunity to listen to her talk in person. I only just recently watched this movie - somewhat afraid that the Hollywood glamour would not do the subject justice. Boy was I wrong. Claire Danes absolutely nailed this role. To the point where I, unlike usual, did not see the actress behind the role, I saw only Temple Grandin. Kudos to Danes for buying totally into the role. The movie itself tells the story of Grandin after she decides to further her education and her humiliations and triumphs in working her way into a redneck world that wasn't accepting of her at first. The fact that she has become so successful is a testament to the woman that Grandin is. This movie can only touch upon Grandin's life, but what is represented here is an eye-opener to those who believe that challenged people cannot become a success in this world. HIGHLY recommended to anyone, but in particular, those dealing with autism in the family.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see Dec 25 2010
Format:DVD
This is an incredibly talented cast, the script is brilliant and the story is terrific for any one who has ever been "different".
Any one involved with animal behavior should see this movie.
I was lucky to meet her at a pet dog trainers conference. An amazing woman.

The acting is excellent and true to life. It has a serious side when cattle are involved. The frustration on the part of the Mother was very real. I enjoyed this movie and will recommend it to those who need encouragement when living with Autism.
