Claire Danes stars in the title role as Temple Grandin, an autistic young woman who became, through timely mentoring and sheer force of will, one of America’s most remarkable success stories. This HBO Original Movie chronicles Temple’s early diagnosis; her turbulent growth and development during her school years; the enduring support she received from her mother, aunt and science teacher; and her emergence as a woman with an innate sensitivity and understanding of animal behaviour. Undaunted by educational, social and professional roadblocks, Temple turned her unique talent into a behavioural tool that revolutionized the cattle industry and laid the groundwork for her successful career as an author, lecturer and pioneering advocate for autism and autism spectrum disorder education.
