Hacksaw Ridge, a biographical war drama film, was directed by Mel Gibson based on a screenplay written by Andrew Knight, Randall Wallace, and Robert Schenkkan. Andrew Garfield, Sam Worthington, Vince Vaughn, Hugo Weaving, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, Richard Pyros, Ryan Corr, and Rachel Griffiths star in the highly-acclaimed film, with the first accolades coming from a 10-minute standing ovation at the 73rd Venice Film Festival.
Based on a true story, the film follows the story of Desmond T. Doss, a U.S. Army medic whose Seventh-day Adventist faith underlined his stance as a conscientious objector of war. He refused to bear arms since doing so is against his moral values but he’s also as dedicated to serving in the war. He’s on the front lines without a single weapon but he singlehandedly saved the lives of more than 75 of his comrades-in-arms during World War II’s fierce Battle of Okinawa.
