- "Temple Grandin," the HBO biopic, wasnít in theaters. But people have the chance to watch the movie on a big screen during a free showing on the campus where Grandin works and teaches. The movie, released in 2010, depicts Grandinís early life and career as she struggled to cope with autism and ultimately found comfort and success in her connection to animals. Just last August, the movie won an impressive seven Emmy Awards, sweeping all the major categories; actress Claire Danes also won a Golden Globe for her work in the title role. Introducing the movie will be a representative of the CSU Occupational Therapy Department, which has a new research project under way meant to assist students on the autism spectrum.
