Based on the acclaimed book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier, DENIAL recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt’s (Rachel Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier.

 

When university professor Deborah E. Lipstadt includes World War II historian David Irving in a book about Holocaust deniers, Irving accuses her of libel and sparks a legal battle for historical truth. With the burden of proof placed on the accused, Lipstadt and her legal team fight to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.

 

Critic Quotes:

“Hare’s screenplay (based on Lipstadt’s book) is smart and engaging, and veteran director Mick Jackson (“The Bodyguard”) treats the material with the heft it deserves.” – Adam Graham, Detroit News

“It is a particularly difficult and complex case to dramatize and this clever film with its impressive cast mainly succeeds.” – Globe and Mail

“Ultimately “Denial’ works, thanks to its strong cast – particularly Spall, who gives Irving a slightly mad gleefulness, and Weisz, whose smart, tough Deborah chafes against the quiet acquiescence expected of her.” – Seattle Times

“Awaiting the verdict makes for a real nail-biter, even knowing the outcome. Denial does a stellar job demonstrating the truth is worth fighting for.” – Toronto Star

“Weisz’s conviction, passion and galvanizing outrage drive “Denial.” For a Jewish academic, this was no intellectual exercise, and Weisz lets us see it.” – San Francisco Chronicle
