Adapted by David Hare from Deborah E. Lipstadt's book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier.

Mick Jackson's powerful film features a startling turn by Timothy Spall as David Irving, the discredited historian who sued the author for libel over his beliefs about the Holocaust. Lipstadt is played by Rachel Weisz in a timely drama that emphasises the importance of history and the ongoing battle to prevent it being rewritten.
