Movies@TheHilt: Hacksaw Ridge

Friday 14th July. Doors open at 7pm, trailer at 7:30, film at 7.45pm.

Hacksaw Ridge: An exceptional hard hitting true story of how much difference one man can make

Warning: very powerful, loud and graphic scenes of first world war battlefield.

Be prepared, but dont let the warning put you off, this story just has to be told... it is true and the closing scenes introduce the movie-goer to the real character.

The true story of Pfc. Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield), who won the Congressional Medal of Honor despite refusing to bear arms during WWII on religious grounds. Doss was drafted and ostracized by fellow soldiers for his pacifist stance but went on to earn respect and adoration for his bravery, selflessness and compassion after he risked his life -- without firing a shot -- to save 75 men in the Battle of Okinawa.

Reviews: IMDB, NY Times
