Candid Magazine’s Fraser Kay says, ‘Hacksaw Ridge flourishes as a slice of war cinema of the highest quality.’ Directed by Mel Gibson and starring Andrew Garfield, Richard Pyros and Vince Vaughn, the film has been extolled as a war epic for the modern age. Candid’s Chicago-based associate, Jeff Conway met with Vaughn, who plays Sergeant Howell, for an exclusive interview. Watch it here:
Jeff is a multiple-Emmy nominated television journalist based in Chicago – a city that features in our current issue – The Art Issue. One of the Windy City’s most celebrated TV hosts, Jeff began his journey via an entertainment television series on NBC and swiftly worked his way up to become the sole producer and correspondent of the show. He then moved on to Comcast’s Scene Network where he is a host and producer for the celebrity and fashion content. Jeff interviewed our editor-in-chief, Courtney Blackman on the channel last summer and some of his most memorable interviews to date include Channing Tatum, Robert Downey Jr., Reese Witherspoon, Jodie Foster and Zac Efron.
Hacksaw Ridge is now out in UK cinemas.
