Hacksaw Ridge

"When the order came to retreat. One man stayed."

This war-themed drama is based on the true story of a soldier who became a hero in the Battle of Okinawa in World War II despite his refusal to bear arms against the enemy. Andrew Garfield stars as Pfc. Desmond Doss, a conscientious objector who ultimately saved 75 of his fellow soldiers, even though he had consistently been harassed for his beliefs by his fellow soldiers and superior officers throughout his military career. The film was directed by Mel Gibson and co-stars Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, and Teresa Palmer. It premiered at the Venice Film Festival in September 2016 and opened in North American theaters in November.
