Movie Matinees

 

 

On Wednesday, March 29 the Epsom Public Library will be showing the movie, “Hackshaw Ridge” at 1:30.  Directed by Mel Gibson the film tells the true story of Desmond Doss who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of World War II saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun.   He was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor according to publicity for the film.  Pete Hammond of “Deadline” said “This is a truly remarkable and moving film about unimaginable courage in the face of impossible odds.”
