'Hacksaw Ridge' was shot in various locations across New South Wales in 2015 and tells the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield, 'The Amazing Spider-Man', 'The Social Network', '99 Homes') 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 rescued the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was injured by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honour, which is the highest military honour in the U.S., awarded for personal acts of valour above and beyond the call of duty.

The film also stars Vince Vaughn ('Wedding Crashers', 'Into The Wild'), along with Australian actors Sam Worthington ('Avatar', 'Everest'), Luke Bracey ('Home & Away', 'The Best of Me', 'Point Break'), Ryan Corr ('The Water Diviner', 'Holding The Man', TV’s 'Packed To The Rafters'), Teresa Palmer ('Warm Bodies') and Academy Award nominee Rachel Griffiths (TV’s 'Brothers & Sisters', 'Six Feet Under', 'Hilary and Jackie').
