'Hacksaw Ridge' brings to the big screen the extraordinary story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) - a US army medic who, while refusing to bear arms, saved countless lives in the bloodiest battles of WWII. From his humble beginnings, strong pacifist beliefs and an earnest romance with a local nurse (Teresa Palmer), to the confusion and anger of his fellow soldiers in basic training, to the unthinkable carnage of Okinawa, Doss' story is powerful, heart-wrenching and here portrayed unflinchingly by director Mel Gibson ('Braveheart').
