    This was such an inspiring movie-thank you to Temple, HBO and everyone involved. What an extraordinary story and what an extraordinary person Temple is. Thanks for bringing it to HBO! It should be brought to network television also as it is soo important for pepople to become educated on the topic of autism. Thanks again! and Claire Danes did such a wonderful job! WOW!

    I went to see Temple Grandin in Visalia Calif. where she went to speak. She is amazing! I currenrtly write Social Stories for autistic students in my school district so I am a little familiar with autism.I didn't have HBO but when she told us that she had a movie coming out in Feb. I ordered HBO just to watch it. The movie was great!The actress that portrayed Temple was fantastic! Having met and hearing and seeing Temple Grandin, she portrayed her to a "T".I'm glad for all the recognition this movie got.

    Thanks for posting this, THG.

    Temple Grandin was a fantastic movie and the woman herself is an incredible role model for autism. I appreciate that you made this post more about the issue, less about the outfits.
