Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson and Timothy Spall deliver sublime performances in this courtroom drama based on the acclaimed book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier by Deborah E. Lipstadt's.

Denial recounts Lipstadt's (Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. With the burden of proof on the accused, it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.

A powerful and thoughtful piece of cinema that properly depicts and important piece of history and that the truth is worth fighting for.

Director(s): Mick Jackson   Country of Origin: United Kingdom, United States  Year: 2016   Running Time: 1hr 49 mins  
BBFC Advice: 12A Parental supervision required for children under 12.

Looking at the few negative reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, Denial seems to be lacking because there isn't a car chase. However, if you want a skilfully constructed, superbly acted and produced representation of just how hard it can be to refute "alternative facts", and just how brazen the purveyors of these alternative facts are, then see this film. Tom Wilkinson is sensational, Rachel Weisz is excellent, but I couldn't quite separate Andrew Scott's Anthony Julius from Sherlock's Moriarty. Not his fault, my fault. Timothy Spall is mesmerising as the evil Irving.
