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

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.

This is a very well documented DVD on Autism. It is reliable, credible and inspirational and directed with insight and sensitivity. I highly recommend it to any professional or family who is affected by the outcomes of ASD.

This is an excellent movie giving insight into the world of autism and the struggles that accompany it. It is also encourages perseverance and and reminds us that labels are not limiting, they don't decrease our value as human beings! Recommended family viewing.

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.

This is a winner...an honest portrayal of autism.

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.

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.
