Hacksaw Ridge – June 30th (special Hot dogs & chips @ 6:30pm)

Hacksaw Ridge – a faith-based movie that features a powerful message, a gripping performance from Andrew Garfield as Desmond T. Doss, as well as dynamic directing from Mel Gibson. The movie is based on the true story of Doss, who refused to learn to handle a gun during his basic training during World War II, but saved 75 American lives as a medic. Much of his actions included finding soldiers after battle &lowering them to safety on a rope in order for them to receive the medical care they needed. He is mocked &ridiculed at the beginning for taking on the role of conscientious objector &refusing to kill others. He is tagged a coward, but at least two men that believe that tell him later on, “I was wrong,” & he gains the respect of his entire unit. His commitment to his faith, as he often reads his Bible, is commendable. Included in the movie is the story of Doss meeting a young woman named Dorothy (Teresa Palmer), & their subsequent romance, with her telling him after he joins the Army, “You come home to me.”
