Acclaimed writer and historian Deborah Lipstadt battles for historical truth to prove that the Holocaust actually occurred when David Irving, a renowned denier, sues her for libel. Denial is powered by performance, with Spall’s Irving a poisonous mix of insecurity and bravado, a man blinded by his own prejudice and amplified by bluster; while Weisz gives a nuanced turn as the impassioned Lipstadt, who fi nds herself representing an entire people in her quest to prove the truth, ably supported by her legal team.
Denial does a stellar job demonstrating the truth is worth fighting for -Rotten Tomatoes
