Review | Temple Grandin

AIR DATE: SATURDAY 2/6

Claire Danes certainly chose an offbeat role for her first TV project since 1994's My So-Called Life. In this fact-based flick, she plays Temple Grandin, an autistic who, encouraged by her devoted mom (a fine Julia Ormond), pushed past nay sayers to become a top animal scientist. Danes brings her quirky part to life, and striking visual effects help viewers see into her sometimes scary perspective. Chalk it up as a winning outing. (HBO, 8 P.M.)
