Hacksaw Ridge, the 2017 Academy Award winner for Best Achievement in Film Editing and Best Achievement in Sound Mixing, tells the harrowing tale of Desmond T. Doss and his experience surrounding World War II . The film stars the talented actor Andrew Garfield and was directed by Mel Gibson.
Film Synopsis: The extraordinary true story of conscientious objector Desmond T. Doss who saved 75 men in Okinawa, during the bloodiest battle of WWII, without firing a single shot. Believing that the war was just but killing was nevertheless wrong, he was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon. As an army medic Doss single-handedly evacuated the wounded near enemy lines – braving enemy fire and putting his own life on the line. He was the first conscientious objector to ever win the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Hacksaw Ridge is Rated R for intense, prolonged and realistically graphic sequences of war violence, including grisly body images.
