Summary from Kanopy:

This biographical drama 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. 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 (Tom Wilkinson), to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.

Nominated for Outstanding British Film of the Year at the BAFTA Awards. Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival.

“Weisz’s conviction, passion and galvanizing outrage drive Denial. For a Jewish academic, this was now intellectual exercise and Weisz lets us see it.” – Mick LaSalle, The San Francisco Chronicle
