Affleck is on point, Williams will break your heart and you’ll be looking out for Lucas Hedges in years to come. Kenneth Loregan’s subtly beautiful and sneakily tragic film is gentle and brutal in equal measure.
Hacksaw Ridge is a triumphant return to directing for Mel Gibson following a decade long absence. Based on the true events of Desmond T. Doss during one of the bloodiest battles of WWII at Okinawa.
