An Acceptable Loss
When former U.S. security adviser Elizabeth Lamm (Tika Sumpter) leaves public service to take a position as a university lecturer, the sins from her past come back to haunt her. The U.S. President (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her Chief of Staff pressure Lamm to remain loyal to their administration, even as a mysterious student begins stalking her. This political thriller from Chicago writer-director Chappelle (The Wire) is an entertaining mix of Scandal and All the President’s Men.
