Her lack of social skills and sometimes violent reactions to the overstimulation in her environment made it tough to fit in to say the least, on DVD. Danes, who is in nearly every scene of director Mick Jackson's DVD, is remarkable, embodying Grandin's various idiosyncrasiessuch as talking too loud, too fast, and too muchon this DVD, without resorting to caricature.
