Denial | Ratings & Reviews

"Rachel Weisz finds the prickly heart of Lipstadt, replete with a Queens accent, even if she’s effectively silenced as the defence team pursues a tactic that puts Irving on trial and forbids Lipstadt or any Auschwitz survivors from testifying. Lipstadt wants to attack the case all guns blazing, she wants American balls-out bluster, but the reserved Brits convince her otherwise. That Brit/Yank divide is mined amusingly throughout, with Lipstadt telling a stateside colleague that the judge (that master of the quivering upper lip, Alex Jennings) looked “like something straight out of Masterpiece Theatre”."

"The crucial thing missing is what should be the essence of a courtroom drama: our immersion in how Lipstadt's lawyers stake out their strategy."


"You wonder if the material would have been more effective as a courtroom procedural adapted for the stage."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Patches of it are so ludicrously hammy it plays like one of those unbearably corny fake films teased at the beginning of Tropic Thunder."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"A compelling courtroom drama peppered with some truly sublime performances."


"Because Hare's script grapples with serious themes and singular events whose ramifications are still being felt, it is effective when it counts."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"A compelling, true courtroom drama touches on the lingering pain of the Holocaust."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"The court hearings are almost unbelievable and yet are lifted, verbatim, from the records."


"It's frustrating to see a movie that's so perfect for the age in which we live and yet bungles its narrative so completely."
