Have You Met Temple?

No, not the religious one. Temple Grandin. The Scientist.
A hidden gem in the vast archives of my Netflix account. I was intrigued by the cover.

A story based on the real life of an autistic woman who becomes one of the top scientists in the humane livestock handling industry.

It begins with Temple on the verge of college and quite happy to remain in highschool. Her desire to be a scientist and also to be with animals, and a supportive high school science teacher spur her on to college. A mother who is beyond patient and full of love for her child who is "different, but not Less" makes this movie heart wrenching but not a tear jerker. Temple's straight forwardness is refreshing and quite often humurous, keeping things light.

Rated PG. One instance of the word "dammit", a scene of bloody bull testicles used to frighten Temple, a scene where masturbation is subtly implied in question. I would recommend for pre teens and older. Great story of the value and preciousness of all life.

Check it out. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
