Official Trailer for Holocaust Drama 'Denial' Starring Rachel Weisz
"I'm not attacking freedom of speech. I've been defending my right to stand up against someone who wants to pervert the truth." What if you had to prove the Holocaust actually happened? That's the story behind this film, titled Denial, telling the true story of writer and historian Deborah E. Lipstadt's fight to clear her name when she's sued for libel by a Holocaust denier. Rachel Weisz stars as Lipstadt, along with Timothy Spall as the denier David Irving, and a cast including Andrew Scott, Tom Wilkinson, Mark Gatiss and Harriet Walter. This actually looks very strong, and quite compelling overall, thanks to what seem to be excellent performances and a script by the award-winning playwright David Hare. Check it out.
