Temple Grandin [DVD]

Mar 4, 2011

Temple Grandin, if you don't already know, is an autistic woman that invented a more humane way of slaughtering cows.  Her chute is a circular walk for these cows which creates little to no anxiety.  "Nature is cruel, but we don't have to be."  This movie shows the ups and downs of an autistic person trying to make her way in "normal" society and how these "normal" people treat her.  I remember seeing Temple Grandin for the first time on Oprah! and how she was so intriguing.  So when I saw that Claire Danes was portraying her in a movie, I wanted to see itand was not disappointed.
