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. – Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine, Sep 30, 2016

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. – Jake Coyle, Associated Press, Sep 29, 2016

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. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 5, 2016

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. – Stephanie Merry, Washington Post, Oct 6, 2016
