Director Mick Jackson (The
Bodyguard, Temple Grandin) and
writer David Hare (The Hours) recount
the 1996 libel case brought against Deborah E. Lipstadt by the discredited
historian David Irving, who asserted that she had defamed his reputation by
labelling him a Holocaust denier in her book Denying the Holocaust. Per English libel law, the burden of proof
rests with the defendant, which meant that Lipstadt then had to prove that what
she had written was true; that the Holocaust had indeed taken place.
Denial boasts a
plethora of strong performances, including those of Rachel Weisz as Lipstadt
and Tom Wilkinson as barrister Richard Rampton, working through important
questions that are as pertinent today as they were for the case, chiefly the
equality of opinions and the pursuit of truth and facts in the face of those
who aim to legitimise hatred through perpetuating falsehoods.
