Did anyone here see HBO's 'Temple Grandin'?
it was on a few weeks ago.

http://www.hbo.com/movies/temple-grandin/index.html

Thoughts?

I thought it was good and Claire Dane's portrayal of Temple
was excellent!

1. Sorry the link is acting up,
Edited on Thu Feb-25-10 10:40 AM by Kajsa
it worked yesterday.

Here's another link,

http://www.hbo.com/movies/temple-grandin/index.html#/mo...


Temple Grandin is a true story of a young lady with autism,
who overcame the roadblocks and discrimination against her
( she grew up in the 50's)
to get her Masters Degree,PhD and design/ develop humane methods of
treating livestock,

She is now an assistant professor at the Colorado State University, teaching
Animal Science.

Temple is a strong advocate for those with autism and Asperger's.
She is against "curing" autism and advocates better understanding
and acceptance instead.

More info on her.

This is a great film, IMO.

4. Hi Odin,
If you have cable, see if your cable provider has any specials on HBO.

Mine still offers it for $5/mo which is reasonable.

Otherwise, I'm sure it will be out on DVD soon.

:) :hi:

3. I recorded it. I haven't watched it yet because I'm waiting for an opportunity
to watch without my husband, who is not interested in watching it. We have an autistic son that is 13 now.
