Well-played, somewhat understated, courtroom drama that deals with Irving V penguin and Lipstadt.
I remembered this case. But in my mind it was much older than the turn of the 20th century. Disturbing to be shown it was so recent.
The roles are well played. Particularly those of Irving, Lipstadt, Julius, and Rampton. The contrasts between this English courtroom drama and American courtroom dramas are clear from the start. Though the professionalism, skill, and commitment of the legal team is not apparent until later in the movie. Weisz seems to show how alien Lipstadt must have found the experience.
A well done film on a compelling case that is worth going to see.
