This one's an all star. I had put this on my watch list and kept skipping over it. I just had the feeling that the character of Temple Grandin would be hard to pull off, and because of that would be more miss than hit. But then I just happened to look up the ratings on Rotten Tomatoes and saw the 100% and 95%, so I settled in.

The film was a great combination of acting, directing, and story telling. It didn't get into the overly maudlin nor the grandiose. It was a very down-to-earth portrayal of a very gifted women looking to move forward courageously in a very confusing world.

I've seen Danes in a few movies, but never considered her a top notch actor. Well, I've found that, that's a very inaccurate appraisal. In this role she shined. She was Will Smith as Mohammed Ali. She was Jamie Fox as Ray. There WAS no Claire Danes only Temple Grandin.

I loved the story, the struggle, the challenge, the courage, the love. A most satisfying film on all levels. Yes, near perfection indeed.

A very fine film based on the life of Temple Grandin. I thought they did a very good job of it. Watch it.

Interesting, I was a visual-type learner too, but obviously not to the extent of a Temple Grandin type, but enough to enjoy and relate in a small way to the visual cues the movie chose, which is the kind of touch that can make or break a project like this. Well-made.

Temple Grandin is an incredible look into the autistic mind. As someone on the spectrum, I can attest to its accuracy.

Outstanding film. Clare Danes was fantastic. She was so 'in' the character that it took me a while to identify her. Parents and Educators should certainly see this film.

First of all, I never took Claire Danes seriously, because,in all the movies that I watched with her, she struck me as a half baked actress who specialized in some silly roles. But her performance in this movie is simply captivating. And the movie's message about autism and a humane handling of cattle -- wow, I am glad that I watched this movie.

The overall story was interesting and Claire Danes put on yet another impressive performance, but the movie just felt slow and long. They did a good job of helping you see the world through her eyes and understand how overwhelming it could be.

Clare Danes gives a hypnotic performance and director Mick Jackson keeps the film as visually interesting and full of ideas.

I have always been sort of indifferent about Claire Danes, but I believe that with this film she has really proved herself to be quite an actress.

It's a performance that if done poorly could have come across as over the top are cartoonish, but Danes nuanced performance brings the quirky Grandin to life in a very believable, moving yet empowering way.

The supporting cast (particularly Ormond & O'Hara) are also superb.

In addition to the great acting, the film was edited and enhanced in a delightful way, that really helps the viewer have a better understanding of the complex way that Grandin's (brilliant) mind works.

An exceptionally good film about an exceptionally brilliant woman.
