Dallas’ Studio Movie Grill opens Reel Docs film series with Temple Grandin movie
Plus, there'll be a real doc from Children's Medical Center in attendance for the Q-and-A.
Anyone who watched the Emmys or the Golden Globes or SAG Awards this year became fairly used to seeing Claire Danes getting up to accept various Best Actress golden statuettes for her performance as Temple Grandin in the biopic of the same name. (Those same watchers also got used to seeing the real Temple Grandin variously standing up and waving from the audience, or prancing up onstage to accept plaudits on her own account — the inspiring story behind the film being, after all, hers.)
Dallas' Studio Movie Grill will screen Temple Grandin for free next Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. This, the first of their new REEL DOCS series, is presented in association with Children's Medical Center with the support of HBO (which produced the film).
In attendance to introduce the film and moderate a Q-and-A following will be Dr. Patricia Evans, a specialist in autism, traumatic brain injury, and cognitive delay at Children's Medical. She wrote a book called A Clinical Guide to Autism Spectrum Disorders, so she ought to be able to offer an enlightened view on the subject matter and its portrayal in the film.
