NOMINATED FOR SIX OSCARS INCLUDING 'BEST ACTOR' ANDREW GARFIELD

WWII American Army Medic Desmond T. Doss (Garfield), who served during the Battle of Okinawa, refuses to kill people, and becomes the first man in American history to receive the Medal of Honor without firing a shot.

Desmond T. Doss was a member of the US Army's 77th Infantry Division. Known as the "Liberty Division", the 77th fought at Guam, Leyte (Philippines) and Okinawa. One of its units, Company C of the 306th Infantry Regiment, left the US in 1944 with 203 officers and men. By war's end in August 1945, just 13 of the original members were left. The 77th fought alongside the Marines, and a newspaper article during the war described how the division's soldiers fought so well at Guam that they earned the ultimate compliment--the Leathernecks nicknamed their Army counterparts the "77th Marine Division."

The first film directed by Mel Gibson in a decade, since Apocalypto (2006), and took on the project after Randall Wallace dropped out.  Gibson said the concept of the movie appealed to him because it portrayed a 'real life' superhero without any of the spandex.

When the film premiered at The Venice Film Festival in September 2016, it received a 9 minute, 45 second standing ovation.  Gibson timed it himself.

Doss was known to carry a Bible with him, even in battle.  At one point, he lost it, and it wasn't retrieved until after he had returned home due to his injuries. His division, after capturing the area, searched for some time until they had found it.

While it's believed that Doss saved 75 men by directly lowering them from the escarpment during the battle, he also treated around 55 more that were able to retreat without assistance after treatment during the battle.  Over the course of his tour, which lasted approximately 3 weeks, he rescued nearly 300 men.
