Libby teaches at a university but 4 years ago she was top aide to VP Rachel and was part of a total victory action. Rachel is now US president and worried about Libby keeping quiet. Libby also has a student spying on her.
Former top U.S. security adviser Elizabeth "Libby" Lamm (Sumpter) is threatened by associates from her dark past including Rachel Burke (Curtis), a steely, commanding politician with an unwavering knack for achieving her goals. Colluding with Rachel is Adrian, an unyielding, patriotic chief of staff. Martin (Tavassoli) harbors another type of obsession with Libby in this story of betrayal and regret.Written by

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.
