Mel Gibson’s WWII drama Hacksaw Ridge has received a staggering 10-minute standing ovation during its world premiere at the 73rd Venice Film Festival.
The movie is based on the true story of US Army medic Desmond Doss, a Seventh-day Adventist who saved the lives of 75 of his comrades while refusing to bear arms under seige at the Battle of Okinawa.
The American-Australian film was filmed mostly in Australia and stars Andrew Garfield and Vince Vaughn alongside homegrown talent Teresa Palmer, Sam Worthington, Ryan Corr, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths and Richard Roxburgh.
According to Deadline, the film received a standing ovation – a rarity at Venice – that lasted roughly 10 minutes. Approximately six minutes into the applause, Gibson, Garfield, Palmer and the rest of the cast waded into the crowd to shake hands with the audience.
Gibson’s comeback film is shaping up to be one of the favourites at the prestigious event. It is expected to be a serious contender at the Oscars later this year.

Tri-Point are proud to have been involved with such a great film.
Premiering in a cinema near you soon!
