Denial (12A) In her 1993 book Denying The Holocaust, American academic Deborah Lipstadt dubbed British historian David Irving “one of the most dangerous spokespersons for Holocaust denial”. Irving was well known for his outspoken pronouncements, which included declaring that there had never been gas chambers at Auschwitz. Lipstadt was stunned, then, when he sued her for libel, obliging her under English law to prove in court that the Holocaust really happened. The ins and outs of this landmark battle are the subject of Denial, a captivating drama scripted by David Hare, with Rachel Weisz as Lipstadt and Timothy Spall as Irving. With its rich characters, topical theme and powerhouse performances, it is one of the winter’s most compelling titles, and a strong award season contender. Friday, Saturday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 6pm, Sunday at 8pm and Tuesday at 2pm and 8.15pm.

Hacksaw Ridge (15) The true story of conscientious objector Desmond Doss (Garfield), who won a Congressional Medal Of Honour during the Second World War without firing a shot. Viewed as a pariah by his peers, Doss took part in the assault on Hacksaw Ridge as a medic and saved the lives of 75 men during the brutal battle that followed. Mel Gibson’s directorial return is a moving account of an outsider finding redemption through extraordinary suffering. Friday, Monday and Thursday at 8.30pm.

Manchester By The Sea (15) Boston janitor Lee (Affleck) lives a life of solitude in his near-empty apartment. His daily drudgery – working, drinking, getting into fights – is disrupted by the news that his brother Joe (Chandler) has died. Reluctantly, Lee heads to his home town, Manchester By The Sea, Massachusetts, where he is shocked to discover that Joe has made him guardian of his teenage son Patrick (Lucas Hedges). There is more to be confronted, however: what happened between Lee and his ex-wife Randi (Williams), who still lives there, that has left such a gaping void in his life? Sunday at 5pm and Wednesday at 8.30pm.
