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.

★★★★ "I find this film and its clear-headed premise rewarding. This reasserts the primacy of truth. What a tonic." The Guardian

★★★★ 'A terrific legal procedural about defending factual truth and smacking dishonest sowers of doubt. An essential film for our era of 'alternative facts.' Flick Filosopher

★★★★ 'This is a powerful and thoughtful piece of cinema. It properly depicts an important moment in legal history and it does so with a rare sensitivity.' Eye for Film

"As we enter the reign of a "post-truther", Denial proves irrefutably powerful." Hot Press
