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. 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 (Academy Award® nominee  Tom Wilkinson ), to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.

So, as you can imagine, it's a really important but not very cheery movie. More one of those dramas the Brits are so good at putting out. I can only imagine the award nominees out of the cast are looking to become award winners.
