Denial recounts the true story of Deborah Lipstadt's legal battle for historical truth against the notorious Holocaust denier David Irving, who accused her of libel when she denounced him in her acclaimed book, Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory. With the burden of proof in English defamation law falling upon the defendant, it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred. With a screenplay by David Hare this is gripping courtroom drama at its best.

‘One of the most spectacular aspects of the film are the court hearings as they are simultaneously almost unbelievable and yet lifted, verbatim, from the records.’ Lochley Shaddock, Filmlink
