STARS TELL WHERE THEIR LOY­AL­TIES LIE

In Touch (USA) - - Sneak Preview - BY JEN­NIFER WEINER

FRI. 10/14, R ★★★✩✩

Filmed in front of 50,000 and book­ended by an ex­trav­a­gant James Bond par­ody co-star­ring Halle Berry, the A-lis­ter’s stand-up com­edy spe­cial would seem like a van­ity project — if he weren’t so will­ing to make him­self a punch line for en­er­getic riffs on an­i­mal at­tacks, tex­ting and Star­bucks.

Cer­tain Women FRI. 10/14, R ★★★✩✩

This sub­tly im­pact­ful drama con­nects the sto­ries of a lawyer (Laura Dern) whose dis­traught client (Jared Har­ris) gets into a hostage sit­u­a­tion; a mother (Michelle Wil­liams) ne­go­ti­at­ing to build her dream home and a lonely rancher (Lily Glad­stone) who bonds with a law stu­dent (Kris­ten Stewart) who’s teach­ing a night class.

The Ac­coun­tant FRI. 10/14, R ★★✩✩✩

Ben Af­fleck plays an autis­tic ac­coun­tan­ta­s­sas­sin (yes, you read that right) out to pro­tect a plucky co-worker (Anna Ken­drick) after un­cov­er­ing a sin­is­ter fi­nan­cial se­cret in this lu­di­crous but en­ter­tain­ing thriller. Packed with baf­fling back­story, it will be a guilty plea­sure for some, while oth­ers will feel like they’re be­ing au­dited. The Gist: The In Her Shoes nov­el­ist turns to non­fic­tion with this witty, in­sight­ful mem­oir cov­er­ing “the F word” (fat), lit­er­ary feuds, tweet­ing about The Bach­e­lor, moth­er­hood, Hol­ly­wood — and much more.

No­table Quotable: “If your 3-year-old says she ‘just wants to hold’ the bot­tle of sparkly red nail pol­ish, she is full of s---.”
