An Acceptable Loss, directed by Chicago Fire alum Joe Chappelle and featuring Jeff Hephner and David Eigenberg, is now on iTunes, Blu-Ray and Showtime.

If you didn’t get a chance to see An Acceptable Loss when it was released last year, the movie from Chicago Fire director Joe Chappelle is now available on a wide variety of platforms.

The political drama is available digitally on iTunes and Amazon Video, on Blu-Ray and DVD through Shout! Factory, and also currently airing on Showtime and various Showtime channels for those Fire fans who want to watch on TV.

Making it even easier: Showtime is currently offering a 30-day free trial to new users who sign up either directly through their website or through Amazon Video, so you can go and watch the movie for free—for an entire month, if you wanted to.

An Acceptable Loss is written and directed by Joe Chappelle, who has directed some of Chicago Fire‘s biggest episodes, including the 100th episode. He’s an outstanding director, and several of the show’s actors played significant roles in the movie.

Alex Weisman (who recurred as paramedic Chout) has a supporting role as Jordan, the college student who begins to suspect something is wrong with his new roommate Martin (played by Ben Tavassoli).

That’s because Martin has developed an interest in Libby Lamm (Tika Sumpter), a former White House aide who’s trying to move on after a controversial military action that killed thousands.

But Martin’s not alone—Libby’s also in the crosshairs of the enigmatic political operative Adrian, played by Fire and Chicago Med fan favorite Jeff Hephner. Adrian, along with Libby’s former boss Rachel Burke (Jamie Lee Curtis), will do anything to ensure her silence.

And Chicago Fire star David Eigenberg has a small but pivotal role as someone who gives Libby a poignant piece of his mind regarding her dangerous past.

It’s an enjoyable thriller that never quite got the exposure it deserved, with a limited theatrical release last year. But now it’s available to anyone who wants to see it and it’s definitely worth taking the time. Even if you’re just watching it for the One Chicago connections, Hephner is able to be charmingly disturbing, and Eigenberg’s screen time will break your heart.

Watch the trailer again below, and then go check it out either on Showtime or through the digital platform or physical media of your choice.
