SCORE
DENIAL (2017)
Starring Rachel Weisz, Andrew Scott, Timothy Spall and Tom Wilkinson. Directed by Mick Jackson.

In the 1990s, an impassioned and articulate American Professor, Deborah Lipstadt publishes a book, 'Denying The Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory'. Soon after, a prominent 'denier' referenced in Lipstadt's work, David Irving, sues her for defamation. Suddenly, under the rule of the English legal system, Lipstadt must prove that the Holocaust occurred in order to discredit Irving and clear her name. She is matched with a brilliant but eccentric barrister, Richard Rampton and the exceptionally smart lawyer Anthony Julius, who ask Deborah to buy into a unique and daring strategy - remain silent. Neither Deborah nor a single Holocaust survivor is to take the stand during their defense, thereby avoiding any possibility of emotional bias.
