DENIAL is a drama based on the true story of the unsuccessful libel action brought by David Irving against Deborah Lipstadt, which hinged on the issue of 'Holocaust denial'.

Language

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'). Milder terms include 'shit' and 'hell'.

Discrimination

A racist rhyme is recited in a court room.

A crowd shout at a character, calling her a 'dirty Jew' and 'Jewish scum'.

There are references to the Holocaust including images from the Auschwitz museum showing collections of victims' glasses and shoes. There are discussions about how victims were killed in gas chambers. A brief image shows some panicked faces behind a door as a character imagines Auschwitz.
