Entertainment One UK is pleased to make available the brand new official poster and trailer for DENIAL, Starring Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz, BAFTA nominee Timothy Spall and Academy Award nominee Tom Wilkinson.
Based on the acclaimed book Denial: Holocaust History on Trial, Denial recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt’s (Rachel Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system, in cases of libel, the burden of proof is on the defendant, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team led by Richard Rampton (Tom Wilkinson), to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.
DENIAL is directed by Emmy Award winner Mick Jackson and adapted for the screen by David Hare. Producers are Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff.
DENIAL will be released in cinemas on January 27, which is also Holocaust Memorial Day.
