Itunes does a special each week, where they offer a couple of movies for 99c, which for me saves a few pennies and stops me whining about the price of a cinema ticket - $17 at our arthouse cinema.  In the  efforts to save a few dollars, I like to stock up on a few movies for a middle aged lady night in.

I had heard about this movie a couple of weeks ago, when the story popped up on some news site.  It is a real life story about Deborah Lipstadt.  She is an American Professor of Holocaust studies.  In one of her books, she talks about David Irving, a Holocaust denier.  He then takes her to court for libel, and it is on her team to prove that the Holocaust happens. 

I must say that I was a bit distracted watching the movie, but I found it dull and boring.  Although the three main actors are always stellar - I was a bit distracted by Rachel Weiszs hairdo and accent.  2/5

To be honest, it doesn’t sound like it would be a riveting court case. If there was any drama to it, it would probably be forced. Well, not every judicial story is exciting.
