The HBO movie Temple Grandin recently won 5 Emmys, so naturally, I had to find out why. After all, how interesting could a ‘movie about killing cows’ be?
Temple Grandin, as it turns out, is actually about an autistic woman who grows up to be a doctor and researcher for animal behavior. The above video goes more in-depth with the entire cast.
I’ve been a fan of Claire Danes since she was a teenager in “My So-Called Life” and I have to applaud her for pulling off such a difficult role. She definitely deserves the “Best Actress” award.
As for the real-life Temple Grandin, I believe the Executive Producer put it best when she said, “She not only changed the face of the livestock industry, but she changed the face of Autism.”
