DVD Review: Denial

January 10, 2017

By John Corrado

denial-dvdRecounting the events of a landmark court case in the 1990s, Denial tells the story of Jewish professor and historian Deborah Lipstadt (Rachel Weisz), who was taken to court by David Irving (Timothy Spall), a Holocaust denier who has devoted his life to discrediting proof that Aushwitz was ever used as a killing machine.

Built around excellent performances from Rachel Weisz and Timothy Spall, Denial is an engaging and timely drama that presents a lot of interesting ideas about the dangers of revisionist history.  The film is at its most gripping during the tense legal arguments which are performed with steely resolve by the fine ensemble cast.  This one is well worth a look now that it’s on DVD, and you can read my full review right here.

The DVD includes no bonus features.

Denial is an Elevation Pictures release.  It’s 111 minutes and rated PG.
