This film is a bio-pic about Desmond T. Doss, the first Conscientious Objector in American history to win a Medal of Honor. He did it during World War II as a medic who refused to carry a weapon and kill people. He’s played by Andrew Garfield. The cast includes Hugo Weaving, Vince Vaughn, Sam Worthington, Teresa Palmer, and Rachel Griffiths. Mel Gibson directed.
I know, I was as surprised as you! I thought Mel Gibson was done. I figured he’d never be hired again. I’m glad I was wrong. I don’t know him personally, but professionally he’s one of the best. Plus, I am fascinated by WWII, and this is actually a great story.
Can’t wait to see the film.
