A riveting courtroom drama based on Deborah Lipstadt's true story History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier.

American academic Deborah Lipstadt (Rachel Weisz) is a Jewish professor of Holocaust Studies who is sued for libel by British historian and renowned denier David Irving (Timothy Spall). He claims that by branding him a Holocaust denier she has damaged his career. Crucially, the suit is brought in London, where the legal system places the burden of proof on the defendant. To win the case, her team will have to demonstrate that Irving knew he was lying in denying the truth of the Holocaust. With Irving representing himself and hard-hitting barrister Richard Rampton (Tom Wilkinson) in Lipstadt's corner, the stage is set for a courtroom showdown of enormous historical significance.

Brilliantly dramatised by playwright David Hare, with superb performances from its A-list cast, this compelling film is directed by veteran Mick Jackson, whose credits include 'The Bodyguard'.
