Based on the acclaimed book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier, the film Denial recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt's (Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (Cannes Award winner Timothy Spall), who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system, the burden of proof is on the accused in a defamation suit; therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.
