She also says Claire Danes, in the title role, delivers a remarkable performance. “She became me,” Grandin says. Danes spent hours with Grandin, and studied video and audio tapes of her earlier career. She worked with voice and motion coaches to master Grandin’s mannerisms and speech.
Grandin also notes the producers built accurate replicas of cattle-handling facilities and equipment using her early designs.
Anyone in the livestock business will want to see this tribute to one of our industry’s most compelling and influential personalities.
