Temple Grandin. Innovator. Author. Activist. Autistic.

Update: I updated the video links. They’re a little bit slow but kindly wait for just a few minutes. If you access the site from a mobile, HBO does not show the videos.

Update: I finally was able to watch the movie Temple Grandin, a very inspiring movie.

My attention was caught by this Yahoo! headline, “Mystery star at Emmys explained”. So I read the news and found out about the HBO movie “Temple Grandin” starring Claire Danes, Julia Ormond, Catherine O’Hara and David Strathairn.

Temple Grandin is an innovator, author, activist and autistic. She has a special and brilliant mind despite being autistic. She was diagnosed with autism at the age of 4, according to the Temple Grandin movie trailer. She has a very supportive mother that she was able to pursue her education including a doctorate degree in animal science from the University of Illinois.

The trailer of the HBO movie “Temple Grandin” is so inspiring that I really would like to see the film. Even if I do not know Dr. Temple Grandin, I could see that Claire Danes, as shown in the trailer, really did a good job in portraying her role as Temple Grandin. Claire Danes even won as the outstanding lead actress in a miniseries or a movie at the Emmy Awards. The HBO movie Temple Grandin won as the outstanding made-for-television movie. Julia Ormond as Eustacia, the mother, won as outstanding supporting actress in a miniseries or a movie. David Strathairn as Dr. Carlock won as outstanding supporting actor in a miniseries or a movie.
