An Acceptable Loss

An Acceptable Loss FINAL

When former U.S. security advisor Elizabeth “Libby” Lamm leaves politics to pursue a university teaching position, damaging details of her past emerge jeopardizing her professional future.  Amid scandal, U.S. President Rachel Burke and Chief of Staff Adrian pressure Libby to remain loyal to their administration. Libby’s path to redemption is complicated by a young, mysterious student stalking her. Knowledge of Rachel’s cunning tactics and Adrian’s unyielding allegiance to the presidency force Libby to question the lengths to which her former associates are willing to go to maintain their political status. Discussion with writer-director Joe Chappelle, producer Colleen Griffen, and Todd Sechser (UVA), moderated by Barbara Perry (Miller Center)
