In 2002 when the film came out, there were some criticisms of the film as being too soft, and too sympathetic to the character of AO Neville. Others claimed he had been defamed. What’s less controversial is the fact that it’s an extraordinary piece of storytelling by Phillip Noyce and his team. ESL Sites. DustEchoes-BatButterfly-StudyGuide.
