    We are purchasing additional copies of this movie for friends as we absolutely loved it. There is lots of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding conveyed through this movie. This is one of those rare movies where as you're watching it, you don't want it to end. It's that good. A couple weeks later we watched it again and listened to the commentary channel - even more enjoyable and insightful. Thanks to HBO for taking a chance on what turned out to be a wonderful movie.

    I love this movie. With all of the scrutiny of mental illness, this provides a heartwarming story about how autistic people may be different, but their vision is one that needs to be explained further. Temple had people in her life who challenged her the way she needed to be to become an amazing inventor and autism spokeswoman.

    A wonderful account of Temple Grandin's amazing life, her academic achievements, and success in humane handling of cattle. Very touching and educational in the depiction of the challenges of those with autism, and how Temple overcame those hurdles. A great movie!

    this movie is a great story about a lady with autism, and how she was able to overcome the limitations of it, and turn them into an ability far beyond what a "normal" person could achieve.
