HACKSAW RIDGE
2016, Lionsgate, 139 min, USA/Australia, Dir: Mel Gibson

This 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. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Costarring Teresa Palmer, Vince Vaughn, Luke Bracey, Sam Worthington, Hugo Weaving and Rachel Griffiths. “Thanks to some of the greatest battle scenes ever filmed, Gibson once again shows his staggering gifts as a filmmaker, able to juxtapose savagery with aching tenderness.” - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
