Temple Grandin the movie

Once a decade a film comes along that is profoundly uplifting.  That film is Temple Grandin, made in 2010 by HBO.  It won Emmys for Best Made-for-Television Movie, Best Director, Best Lead Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Music Composition, and Best Camera Editing at the 62nd Emmy Awards on Sunday August 29, 2010.   It is the true story of a modern heroine.  Claire Danes plays her with deep understanding.  And the supporting cast is masterful.  Autistic from birth this young women showed courage, brilliance and determination to change the world's understanding of animals.  She has literally changed our world.  I urge you to find this film to rent.  Netflix has it on DVD (but not streaming at this time.)  You will want to know more about this astonishing woman.  Her website is an inspiration.
