2016. 110 minutes. British - American Historical Drama. Rated PG-13 for adult themes and brief, strong language. Directed by Mick Jackson. Screenplay by David Hare based on the book
Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory by Deborah Lipstadt. Stars Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson, and Timothy Spall.
In 1996, the notorious Holocaust denier, David Irving, sued historian Deborah Lipstadt in the British courts for calling him a "falsifier of history". The basis for Irving's suit was Lipstadt's book,
Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory.
A self-aggrandizing, upper-class elitist, Irving believed he had a right, without ever being held accountable, for his international tirades and hateful falsehoods denying the fact of the Holocaust and Nazi horror.
DENIAL presents a stunning and clear headed argument for hard-won truth that we so terribly need now,especially in contrast to today's "alternative facts" and the Trump White House.
"...DENIAL is anchored by wonderful performances from Rachel Weisz and Tom Wilkinson. It's also shockingly relevant to the odd place we find ourselves today." - Wenlei Ma, News.com.au
