This gripping drama is based on the acclaimed book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier. Denial recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt’s (Rachel Weisz) legal battle against David Irving (Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system, the burden of proof is on the defendant and so it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.
Directed by Mick Jackson.
