Intriguing and timely
30 April 2019 | by lindsay-60575See all my reviews

An Acceptable Loss is intriguing and suspenseful- with great performances by JL Curtis and Tika Sumpter. Love the plot twist and great character development- with political suspense and surprising turns. This movie was much better than Vice which was plodding and slow. An Acceptable Loss made you think and after the movie generated interesting conversation from my friends - the sign of a good thoughtful drama.
