Storyline

Plot Summary

Based on the acclaimed book "History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier," DENIAL recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt's (Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (Cannes Award winner Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system in Defamation, the burden of proof is on the accused, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred. Also starring two-time Academy Award nominee Tom Wilkinson, the film is directed by Emmy Award winner Mick Jackson ("Temple Grandin") and adapted for the screen by BAFTA and Academy Award nominated writer David Hare (THE READER). Producers are Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff. Written by Bleecker Street

Trivia All the dialogue in the courtroom scenes is taken verbatim from the trial records. See more »
Goofs There are numerous references by the lawyer and by leading counsel to British and/or UK law, which does not exist. English law and Scottish law are different and therefore the reference should only have been to English law. There are also several references to 'discovery' which is an American legal term. The English equivalent would be disclosure, and the English legal team would certainly have known this and used the correct terminology. See more »
