Denial

Denial

Adapted by David Hare from Deborah Lipstadt’s book History on Trial, Denial brings to the screen one of the most intriguing legal cases of recent British history, where American academic Lipstadt was sued for libel by controversial historian David Irving. Denial is a fascinating portrait not only of the individuals involved, but also of the UK legal system, which at the time placed the burden of proof in such cases on the defendant.

Prevenge

Prevenge

We are big fans of comedian Alice Lowe, having fallen in love with her in Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers which she co-wrote with Steve Oram. She brings her dark deadpan humour to her directorial debut Prevenge, a gory tale of a woman seeking revenge for the death of her husband, the father of her unborn child. The twist here is that it isn’t grief spurring her on – instead it’s the voice of the baby she is carrying that issues murderous orders.

Loving

Loving

Based on the true story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple who fought all the way to the Supreme Court to have their rights recognised in a landmark case, Loving is a film about love, dignity and respect that’s all the more powerful for being resolutely low-key.
