“One of the best Second World War movies since Terrence Malick's The Thin Red Line”
★★★★ - Geoffrey MacNab, Independent


Hacksaw Ridge tells the true story about the American combat medic, Desmond Doss, who becomes the first, and only, conscientious objector to be awarded a Medal of Honor in World War II.

Andrew Garfield (The Social Network) stars as Doss, alongside Sam Worthington, Hugo Weaving and Rachel Griffiths. The first film to be directed by Mel Gibson since 2006’s Apocalypto, this is a real return to form that received a 10 minute standing ovation at the premiere in Venice. 

Also screening for Midweek Treat.
