Good lord did they screw up Thin Red Line. Great movie, except for the highly problematic, okay, let's call it Gauguinian relationship between Mr Jesus and the natives. Iirc, the book just forgets those moments by declaring that the silent Miranda Otto character is the film's only woman. What gives?
