HBO's Temple Grandin movie won big at the 2010 Emmy's tonight and can I just say, I couldn't be happier.
I'm not a movie reviewer or a celebrity blogger, so I won't attempt to do either. But, may I just say, if you have not had the great fortune to see HBO's movie Temple Grandin, sharing some of the life of the autism advocate (living with autism) herself, please do.
Don't wait. It is worth the dollars to purchase or rent it (if money is tight, see it with a group of friends & split the cost). It is worth the time as you will come away with a richer understanding of not only people with autism and their families, but of humanity as a whole.
As I have mentioned before, autism is part of our family, part of our daily lives. And so, yes, this has personal meaning to me. But, I do believe it is something everyone should see and I hope you do. If you haven't already, please do meet a hero, Temple Grandin.
