Oscar® winner Rachel Weisz stars in this powerful true story based on the acclaimed book, Denial: Holocaust History on Trial. When Deborah Lipstadt (Weisz) speaks out against Holocaust denier David Irving (Timothy Spall) over his falsification of history, she discovers that the stakes are higher than ever in the battle for historical truth. Now faced with a libel lawsuit in British court, Lipstadt and her attorney (Tom Wilkinson) have the heavy burden of proving that the Holocaust actually happened, in a riveting legal fight with stunning consequences.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: If Denial doesn't quite do its incredible story complete justice, it comes close enough to offer a satisfying, impactful drama -- and another powerful performance from Rachel Weisz.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Denial is a powerful fact-based story about an American professor who's taken to court in England by a man she accused of being a Holocaust denier. The talky drama may go over the head of younger viewers -- and the subject matter is pretty intense (historical photos from WWII are shown, and there's much discussion of the Holocaust). But it's thought-provoking viewing for teens and adults, with themes including integrity, courage, and teamwork. Expect some swearing (including "s--t" and "f--k") and a fair amount of drinking.
