HBO Film on Autism, Temple Grandin, Premieres September 2Watch the story of bestselling author and animal scientist Temple Grandin and her battle with autism at a time when little was known about it in the medical world.
Golden Globe nominated HBO Original Film Temple Grandin will be premiering in Asia on Friday, September 2 2011 at 10pm, on HBO / HBO HD and HBO Signature. Starring Golden Globe winner Claire Danes, the story of the bestselling author, animal scientist and autism advocate is brought to the screen. The film co-stars Catherine O’Hara with Julia Ormond and Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee David Strathairn. Directed by three-time DGA winner Mick Jackson from a screenplay by Christopher Monger and WGA Award winner William Merritt Johnson, Temple Grandin is based upon the books “Emergence,” by Temple Grandin and Margaret Scariano, and “Thinking in Pictures” by Temple Grandin.
Temple Grandin paints a picture of a young woman’s perseverance and determination while struggling with the isolating challenges of autism at a time when it was still quite unknown. The film chronicles Temple’s early diagnosis; her turbulent growth and development during her school years; the enduring support she received from her mother, her aunt and her science teacher; and her emergence as a woman with an innate sensitivity and understanding of animal behavior. Undaunted by educational, social and professional roadblocks, Grandin turned her unique talent into a behavioral 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.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOWCONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos
