Temple Grandin, an exceptional movie
Temple Grandin was born in 1947 and by the age of 4 had been diagnosed with the label of Autism. This movie is an absolute testimony to the brave soul that has frontiered what it is like to live with autism. In the movie the them is constantly repeated that to be different is not less and that all kinds of door are opening for all of us. The message was awesome and Clare Danes protrayed Temple Grandin in an increditbly authentic and heart felt way.
Gorgeous movie and gorgeous message. This new movie was recently viewed on HBO and I imagine is also available from other sources, ie. Netflix and Blockbuster.
The movie allows us to experience the world in an autistic way. Trust me, afterwards when I was in Barnes and Noble in the Marketfair Mall, I was almost undone by the amount of sounds, smells, traffic, and general chaos that we all take for granted. Be prepared to cry with tears of joy,
