Oscar winner Rachel Weisz stars in the new Bleeker Street release DENIAL as Deborah E. Lipstadt. Based on the acclaimed book Denial: Holocaust History on Trial, DENIAL recounts Lipstadt’s legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (BAFTA nominee Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier.

The film opens limited on September 30, 2016.
