Rachel Weisz Goes Up Against Holocaust Deniers in New Trailer for ‘Denial’
Apple| | By Margo Gothelf
The official synopsis for the film reads:
“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, 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 happened.”Tom Wilkinson, Mark Gatiss, and Andrew Scott will join Weiez in the historical drama. Denial, directed by Emmy winner Mick Jackson, hit theaters on September 30. Check out the full trailer below.
