Hacksaw Ridge

One of the greatest heroes in American history never fired a bullet.


Hacksaw Ridge
In Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WW II, Desmond Doss 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. The film has been nominated for three Golden Globes and has already won several other awards.

Jim Judy quote iconSimply put, this is a terrific war film that not only brings to light the tale of a remarkable real-life man in a story I&rquot;d never heard of before, but also a movie that could prove to be a legendary actor and director&rquot;s redemption and resurrection in an industry where he was otherwise pretty much declared dead.
