New Rachel Weisz Film ‘Denial’ Given September Release

“Denial,” the film adaptation of Deborah Lipstadt’s book “History on Trial: My Day in Court With a Holocaust Denier” has a release date: September 30, 2016.

The film will tell the story of Lipstadt’s legal struggle with controversial English historian David Irving, who filed a libel suit against her after she described his writings as Holocaust denial in her book “Denying the Holocaust.” The trial was decided in Lipstadt’s favor, discrediting Irving in the process.

“Denial” stars Rachel Weisz as Lipstadt and Timothy Spall as Irving. Its release will neatly follow that of Lipstadt’s newest book, “Holocaust: An American Understanding,” which hits bookstores this August.
