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
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.
1) it portrays the sensory overload that can come with some forms of autism. Like in the cafeteria, where the sounds of the knife chopping and the people talking and other cafeteria sounds become overwhelming. But it shows sensory sensitivity in the smaller aspects of day to day life, like squeaky markers.
2) the actress portraying Temple's mother, Julia Ormond, has a scene in which she meets with the doctor who diagnoses Temple, in which she acts with sincerity and strength. It looked genuine.
3) we get to appreciate the brilliance and the difficulties faced by people on the spectrum.
4) The commentary by Temple Grandin lets us know how 'true to life' many of the film's moments were.
