COMPETITION CLOSED

To celebrate the Australian home entertainment release of Hacksaw Ridge, available on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital from March 15, we’re giving away 5 Blu-ray copies!

Andrew Garfield earned an Academy Award nomination for his portrayal of Desmond Doss, a man who dove headfirst into one of the bloodiest battles of WWII armed solely with his faith and determination to help his fellow man. It’s a fascinating, emotional and powerful true story, and it’s been brought to life beautifully by filmmaker Mel Gibson (Braveheart, Apocalypto).

The film took home two Oscar wins and was bestowed with Academy nominations that included Best Picture and Best Director. You’ll want this one on your shelf.

Hacksaw Ridge, which also features performances from Teresa Palmer, Vince Vaughn, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Hugo Weaving and Rachel Griffiths, will be yours to own from March 15.

HACKSAW RIDGE is the extraordinary true story of army medic Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, single-handedly saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. Rejected for his beliefs, Doss fought against prejudice amongst the ranks and at the highest level for the right to serve under his terms. He went on to distinguish himself as a unique hero, rescuing the wounded – one by one – from behind enemy lines and lowering each of them down the infamous ridge to safety.
