Rachel Weisz does not do just any kind of film, from Constant Gardner to Youth, she is unstoppable as Deborah Lipstadt in the film Denial.

Denial is based on the true story of based on Deborah E. Lipstadt‘s book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier about the Irving v Penguin Books Ltd case when the Holocaust scholar was sued by Holocaust denier, David Irving, for libel. (Source Wikipedia).

Rachel is supported by a forceful villain Timothy Spall who plays the Holocaust denier David Irving. Then she has Tom Wilkinson as Richard Rampton, who reminds me you that you do not need to be a Brad Pitt to deliver a dialogue and stun the audience with your performance. The villain of Sherlock Holmes, Andrew Scott plays the Diana lawyer Anthony Julius and his hypnotic nature definitely got him the part.

Denial is a great execution of facts vs beliefs and a motivational film for any upcoming law student.
