With a script from Gibson’s old collaborator Randall Wallace, Hacksaw Ridge is based on the true story of Desmond T. Doss, who served as a US Army medic in World War II during the battle of Okinawa and refused to kill. Despite his objections, his incredible valour saving lives during the battle saw him awarded the Medal of Honor, the first time a conscientious objector has won the decoration.
Garfield is playing Doss, with Vaughn as Sergeant Howell, the man whose job it is to get raw recruits ready for combat, Sam Worthington as Captain Glover, in charge of the unit and Luke Bracey is Smitty Ryker, the tough alpha of the platoon. Teresa Palmer will be Doss’ true love Dorothy Shutte, with Rachel Griffiths as his mother, Bertha.
