HBO’s Thing for Autism

By • Jan 25th, 2010 • Category: 26th Story, Books, Entertainment, Film

It was only a matter of time before someone made a biopic about Temple Grandin. When you stop and think about it, HBO makes perfect sense- so does Claire Danes. (Oh and add Sheila Nevins to my list of creative heroes.)

Ms. Grandin is currently reading a copy of Elaine Hall’s book Now I See The Moon (Elaine starred in the incredible HBO doc Autism: The Musical). I can’t wait to hear what she thinks!

(update! this just in from Temple Grandin: “Now I See the Moon provides insightful ways to teach and work with individuals with autism and severe disabilities.  It will give parents great hope.” Whoop! Whoop! JC)

    I am so excited to see Temple Grandin's film. She has been an inspiration to me always.(I'm going to an advance screening of the biopic next Tuesday). HBO is always the pioneer. They were the first to air the documentary “Autism: The Musical. BTW, I'll be speaking with Temple in Providence, RI in March!

    @Elaine I didn't know you were speaking with her in March– that's fantastic!
