Rachel Weisz Talks About Her Upcoming Film ‘Denial’
Rachel Weisz talk about her upcoming film ‘Denial’ in theaters September 30th. 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, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.
Also starring two-time Academy Award® nominee Tom Wilkinson, the film is directed by Emmy Award® winner Mick Jackson (“Temple Grandin”) and adapted for the screen by BAFTA and Academy Award® nominated writer David Hare (THE READER). Producers are Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff.
