Temple Grandin

I just saw the movie Temple Grandin.

For anyone familiar with Autism or Aspergers, it is a must see.

It is a true story, and it was amazing to see how much she overcame, both in dealing with Autism and in leaving her mark on the cattle industry.

And for all those people convinced that Claire Danes is a bad actress, all I have to do is point at this movie. She was amazing and captured Temple Grandin perfectly.

I LOVE this movie! I agree, Claire Danes was excellent. Her best role ever, I think. My dad always says he's going into his squeeze machine when he goes to work in his home office. Not sure how my mom feels about that.

I haven't seen it, but looks like I should add it to my list!

I was never convinced that Claire Danes was a bad actress, but now I'm wondering why I didn't.
Is she?
Am I a bad judge?
I thought she was good, but apparently there are people who don't.
I'm going to buy this movie.
It's been at Target staring at me, and this is the third blogging review I've read encouraging me to see it, so I will.
I will.
And then I'll analyze Claire's acting abilities.
