Easter Sunday 9th April at 9pm on GREAT! Movies

Critically acclaimed Hacksaw Ridge (2016) is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss played by Andrew Garfield who, in Okinawa, during the bloodiest battle of WWII, 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 Honour.

An unforgettable film for the Bank Holiday weekend.
