Temple Grandin | ★★★★★★★★★★

I do not know if I have ever been so moved by a movie as I was in watching actress Claire Danes beautifully portray Temple Grandin. This made for TV movie might be the most inspirational one that I will ever see.

Dr Temple Grandin inspires hope in all of us. The story tells us of her battle with autism and how she amazed everyone she met - even those who made fun of her. Temple amazed me at every turn. Her genius thrilled me. Her ability to explain autism to us is amazing. In scene after scene Temple presents a picture of how each of us can turn our fears inside out.

I highly highly recommend this movie and, on a scale of ten, I give Temple Grandin ★★★★★★★★★★.
