From the book, History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier by Deborah Lipstadt
A Holocaust denier sues a historian for libel when she says his facts are wrong. Because the lawsuit happens in Britain, the historian has to prove that the Holocaust happened.
This was a well-made and interesting movie. Didn’t hurt that Serious Honey Rachel Weisz played the historian, and Otter Family Favorite Actor Timothy Spall the denier.
Good courtroom drama, a bit of cliffhanging ‘what will happen?’ at the ending (although the fact that a movie was made at all means that the audience knows the ending already) and good writing and characterization.
An excellent and important piece of history, ably presented.
