Temple has designed humane methods of treating cattle in processing plants, winning an award from PETA for her efforts. She's also noted for creating the 'hug box', a deep pressure device designed to calm hyper-sensitive people, which is recognized today as a way of relieving stress.
I've already seen the movie once (at a work inservice day), but that time the enviornment was less than perfect. The "screen" was two large pieces of paper taped to the wall, and the obvious seam was quite annoying. There weren't enough chairs for all the staff, and I ended up sitting on the floor. Tonight's viewing was much better, with a clear HD TV screen and surround sound. I even had a cat on my lap to keep me warm.
