Bleecker Street will make a bid for awards glory this year with Denial, the story of Holocaust denier David Irving's libel case against historian Deborah Lipstadt, played here by Rachel Weisz. The trailer above showcases good performances and a promising plot, though just how successful the filmmakers' attempt at courting votes come awards season will be remains to be seen. Out on the 30th of September in the US and on the 3rd of February in the UK - much as many films take a similar release route between the two countries, with a Fall release in the US and an early-year one in the UK, this is a peculiarly large gap, especially for a film largely set in the UK.
