Acclaimed writer and historian Deborah E. Lipstadt must battle for historical truth to prove the Holocaust actually occurred when David Irving, a renowned denier, sues her for libel.

"A compelling, true courtroom drama touches on the lingering pain of the Holocaust."
- Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
"Spall's performance as Irving is a nuanced masterpiece of patriarchal monstrosity."
- Peter Keough, Boston Globe
"Awaiting the verdict makes for a real nail-biter, even knowing the outcome. Denial does a stellar job demonstrating the truth is worth fighting for."
- Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Another illuminating performance by Rachel Weisz and a brilliant screenplay by the distinguished British playwright David Hare make Denial one of the most powerful and riveting courtroom dramas ever made."
- Rex Reed, New York Observer
"As her adversary, the ghastly Irving, Timothy Spall is excellent, creating a man of great insecurities hidden behind blustering self-confidence."
- Kate Taylor, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
"The fact-based Denial is a well-crafted and skillfully acted drama about standing up for the truth, regardless of how challenging that might be."
- St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Calvin Wilson
"A simple courtroom drama that never betrays its convictions, the film is a basic but bitterly urgent reminder that history is far more fluid than fact, a garden that must be tended to at all times lest it wither and grow weeds."
- Indiewire, David Ehrlich
"As Lipstadt, Rachel Weisz delivers her usual brand of exquisite distress, but a frightfully gaunt Timothy Spall walks away with the movie as Irving."
- J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
