Temple Grandin

Okay, this one is a personal to me, since  I'm autistic as well, and so I relate to some of the thoughts, feelings and how Temple processes things.  That being said, autistics are each unique, with various degrees of abilities and disabilities and different manners in which autism manifests.  When you've met one person with autism, you've met one person with autism.

Anyways, on to the movie Temple Grandin, a biography drama of key points in Temple's life that lead her to become one of the leading experts in humane cattle systems and autism awareness advocate.  It is based on two of the books Temple has written about her life and autism.

It is a very touching story of a young woman with autism struggling to understand and function in a world that does not understand her and can be very cruel to difference.  The film very brilliantly illustrates her unique perspective, challenges and unwavering determination. 

Temple Grandin is wonderfully written, excellently acted and is an awe-inspiring story.

I highly recommend to people looking to know more about autism, as well as those interested in personal dramas.  A beautiful film.
