Nick Jackson's TEMPLE GRANDIN

Review by Dennis D. McDonald

Claire Danes’ performances as Temple Grandin in this biopic is a stunner. She inhabits the role of the autistic researcher like no other performance I’ve seen in recent memory.

Even more important is the level of detail we get about real incidents in Grandin’s life and the avoidance of maudlin schmaltz.

What’s on display here is a true tale of perseverance, intelligence, and mother love. Recommended even if you’re a vegetarian. My favorite quote: “… Different but not less.”
