About the Movie
Based on the acclaimed book Denial: Holocaust History on Trial, Denial recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt's (Academy Award® winner Rachel Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (BAFTA nominee Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system, in cases of libel, the burden of proof is on the defendant, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team, led by Richard Rampton (Academy Award® nominee Tom Wilkinson), to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred. Denial is directed by Emmy Award® winner Mick Jackson ("Temple Grandin") and adapted for the screen by BAFTA and Academy Award® nominated writer David Hare (The Reader). Producers are Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The picture is methodically constructed, to the point that it's sometimes dull. But here and there it sets off a mini charge, building up to a subtly satisfying conclusion.
Fresh: "Denial" is carried less by the normal theatrics of courtroom dramas than a staunch sense of duty to protect the truth. It's an argument for the patient, methodical dismantling of fools.
Fresh: Weisz's conviction, passion and galvanizing outrage drive "Denial." For a Jewish academic, this was no intellectual exercise, and Weisz lets us see it.
Rotten: Hare's screenplay is efficient at delivering facts, but just the facts. The movie may be competent at telling its story, but it's missing one key ingredient: feeling.
This film was amazing on so many levels. Cast and crew expertly delivered an incredible and multi layered (true) story in a fashion that will capture your attention and your imagination. Truly worthy of five stars!
Excellent Movie. One everyone should watch for history! So that we remember.
Fully enjoyed this movie. If you like legal dramas - this is a good one. Acting is amazing, cast is great, music is great, the story is gripping.
