This review is from: Temple Grandin [DVD] (DVD)
Just got around to watching Temple Grandin, having recorded it a couple of weeks ago when it aired, and as soon as the credits rolled I came looking for a DVD of it. No R2 DVD as yet so instead I'm moved to write my first ever Amazon review.
I've always been a fan of Claire Danes, which is why I recorded it, but wasn't at all sure what to expect as this wouldn't usually be the type of subject matter I'd seek out. I certainly don't think I expected to be so utterly engrossed in what is a superb, funny, charming, moving and inspiring story. Danes excelled herself and I'm pleased she was justly rewarded with a Golden Globe.
If I had to criticise, I might say that the film glossed over the tougher moments of Temple's life and that I'm sure some obstacles were harder to overcome than was portrayed. But this film is about the triumph of Temple and not the trials of autism so the generally upbeat tone fits.
They'd better get that R2 version out before Christmas, I want to buy it for my Mum.
