Nomination reaction: Mick Jackson

Director, 'Temple Grandin'

Mick Jackson, director, “Temple Grandin”

“It was one of the most unlikely subjects for a movie. A woman who is autistic and designs slaughterhouses. It’s the kind of story that doesn’t come along any day of the week. I was aware of the responsibility to tell this woman’s story. She was such an unconventional woman. What Claire did with her character, I can’t overstate how difficult it was to be unempathetic. She couldn’t empathize with people, but with cows.”
