Hacksaw Ridge

Hacksaw Ridge


Mel Gibson’s first film as director since Apocalypto (2006), Hacksaw Ridge is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the casualties from behind enemy lines, and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor. ‘A gruesome, pounding war film about the courage of a deeply religious man in nearunbelievable circumstances.’ (CineVue)
