Temple Grandin: Movie Recommendation

Last night I finally got the chance to watch "Temple Grandin". Had been dying to watch it ever since I accidentally saw it in imdb a while back he he...

I HIGHLY recommend the movie. It's now officially one of my fave movies of all time. Claire Danes did a BRILLIANT job on becoming Temple Grandin. I hardly recognized her at all. Even Temple Grandin herself had stated that she was very pleased with Claire Danes' portrayal of herself. 

The movie is brilliant in many ways, especially in taking me to view the world through a highly functional autistic woman's eyes. Here's a quote from the movie:

I know I was different, but NOT less!

Anyway, here's the trailer:

And if you're interested in watching this long video clip of the real Temple Grandin (the speech starts at 6:20 if you want to skip the introduction), here goes:


  1. Thanks for the tip! I'll request boyfriend and I watch this.
    Claire Danes is starring in a series in the UK, Homeland, which is fab. Is it showing over there too? She's a good actress.

  2. Wonderful movie. It's changed the way I see animals as well as humans.

  3. @The World According to Me: Hope you both enjoy the movie, too. Homeland hasn't started here, but I've been intrigued by it ever since I heard about it. :-D

    @M: Indeed! :-))) And after watching her speech video, I had to rewatch the movie to be able to link her words to the content of the movie! :-D
