Mel Gibson directed this biopic about World War II Army medic Desmond Doss (played here by Andrew Garfield). A conscientious objector who refused to take a life or even carry a weapon, Doss was eventually awarded the Medal of Honor for saving the lives of 75 soldiers on the battlefields of Okinawa. Hugo Weaving, Teresa Palmer, Vince Vaughn, and Sam Worthington co-star in Gibson’s return to the director’s seat.
