I'd love to see the movie.

I have a great admiration for Temple Grandin. She was an autistic person who appealed to tough NT's because she was able to use her autism to invent things useful to these NT's, plus making the lives of farm animals easier.

I loved Temple Grandin. The movie gives autism a sympathetic face that isn't Dustin Hoffmann being barely functional as the fictional Raymon/Rainman, or the vacant stare of the all too real school shooter, Adam Lanza. Alongside The Big Bang Theory, Temple Grandin gives a positive spin on us Aspies.

Too bad the interesting movies often start so late in the evening. Now many people will not see it because they are asleep.

Having met the great lady, I like her more than the biopic, though I do wish she were less critical of us technocrats...
