Movie Monday: Temple Grandin

I was already familiar with Autistic, mega-mind Temple Grandin from an interview with her on NPR’s Fresh Air but it was after watching HBO’s movie about her life (thus far), that I became aware of the full scope of her greatness. If you get a chance, I highly recommend checking this one out (see HBO’s schedule for next airing)! In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of a little knitwear representation in the biopic that will undoubtedly, win its leading lady an Emmy nod.

Happy viewing; happy knitting!
P.S. See a full review of this movie on Smells Like Screen Spirit (my husband’s film news site), here.

    I’ll have to look into that one. Sounds interesting.
    On another note, have you seen “Bright Star”, about John Keats? Beautiful knit- and crochetwear in it.

    This is one of the best movies I have seen in a long long time! My sister wanted me to “tape” it for her. I taped and watched–and was hooked. Claire Danes needs to win BIG for this one! FABULOUS!
