A good old-fashioned courtroom drama adapted by David Hare and powered by tremendous performances. This is the compelling story of the famous libel case brought by notorious Holocaust denier David Irving. Spall’s Irving is a poisonous mix of insecurity and bravado, a man blinded by his own prejudice and amplified by bluster. While Weisz gives a nuanced turn as the impassioned Lipstadt, a Jewish-American historian who reluctantly finds herself representing an entire people in her quest to prove the truth. Documenting the necessary triumph of truth, reason and forensic fact over ignorance and prejudice, this is an essential tale for our ‘post-fact’ times.
