Claire Danes is a current Emmy nominee for her excellent title performance in this made-for- HBO biography of the woman who has made several marks during her life, encompassing her advocacy for autism - a condition she has herself - and her work on behalf of animal welfare.
Directed by Mick Jackson ("The Bodyguard"), the film also is an Emmy contender for outstanding made-for-television movie; Catherine O'Hara, Julia Ormond and David Strathairn (all nominated for Emmys for the project, too) also star. *** (Not rated: AS, P)
