Critic Reviews of "Denial"ReelViewsOctober 14, 2016
It's strangely refreshing to watch a courtroom drama where theatricality doesn't trump meticulous examination and cross-examination.Detroit NewsOctober 14, 2016
Hare's screenplay (based on Lipstadt's book) is smart and engaging, and veteran director Mick Jackson ("The Bodyguard") treats the material with the heft it deserves.NewsdayOctober 13, 2016
Facts and opinions duke it out in this thought-provoking if slightly low-key drama based on true events.Toronto SunOctober 13, 2016
As courtroom dramas go, Denial is somewhat sedate.Seattle TimesOctober 13, 2016
Ultimately "Denial' works, thanks to its strong cast - particularly Spall, who gives Irving a slightly mad gleefulness, and Weisz, whose smart, tough Deborah chafes against the quiet acquiescence expected of her.Globe and MailOctober 07, 2016
It is a particularly difficult and complex case to dramatize and this clever film with its impressive cast mainly succeeds.3AWMay 06, 2017
If there's anybody left who's in any doubt about the versatility, range and sheer courage of British acting legend Timothy Spall, his performance in this searing Holocaust drama will set you straight.Urban CinefileApril 24, 2017
Denial plays out a bit like the English: understated, with its explosions of the intellectual kind.Daily Telegraph (Australia)April 19, 2017
Much of its success can be attributed to the calibre of the three central performances.South China Morning PostApril 18, 2017
As Irving, Timothy Spall is wonderfully loathsome. What brings an emotional complexity to the story, however, is Rachel Weisz's bold characterisation of the unsympathetic Lipstadt.Concrete PlaygroundApril 18, 2017
Makes for fascinating viewing.El Pais (Spain)April 17, 2017
A film of judgments that is as circumspect and academic as it is exciting. [Full review in Spanish]
