An Acceptable Loss Starring Tika Sumpter, Jamie Lee Curtis and Ben Tavassoli is a Fast-paced Political Theater Coming to Theaters January 2018: Trailer and Pics

An Acceptable Loss starring Tika Sumter and Jamie Lee Curtis is making it's way to theaters across the county and on-demand beginning January 18th. This film, written by Colleen Griffen of CorrodaoMooncoin Productions and directed by husband Joe Chappelle (Director Chicago Fire, Fringe, The Wire) is a female-driven political thriller. It is female-driven in that the females are the leads in the movie, and the movie showcases females in positions of power.


Tika Sumter plays Libby, a former top US official with something to hide, and Jamie Lee Curtis who is still part of the US Cabinet out to find out exactly what that is. Ben Tavassoli plays Martin, a student at the college Libby now teaches at, who is key to unraveling what the mystery is. The film is an edge-of-your seat thriller that will entertain and also make you think.

The movie was filmed in various locations in Chicago and Evanston Illinois and nearby locations.
One scene was filmed on the L train. Here are two exclusive Behindthescenezz photos:

Is Ellen DeGeneras "Relatable" In Her New Standup Special On Netflix? The Answer is YES, Relatable and LOL: Keep it Coming Ellen

By Suzanne Ordas Curry

Is Ellen Still "Relatable?"

As a big fan of Ellen DeGeneras' daytime talk show, I was a bit disheartened to hear that she may be stepping down from it...maybe that is.

What she is doing now is going back to her roots, doing standup. Netflix nabbed her, and she’s got a special that just started streaming on this platform that now showcases comedians, and well, just about everything else.
