    Just the other day Ben Affleck was embracing his Massachusetts roots in the trailer for "The Town." Now he's using his wicked pissah Boston accent to play a downsized suit in the "Company Men."

    TV Veteran John Wells makes his feature film directorial debut with "The Company Men," which he also wrote, about a bunch of pampered, upper-middle class white guys struggling to survive the Great Recession.

    One can only hope the message of this film is, "Get over yourself, you pencil-pushing ninny and be glad you don't actually work for a living." That's what passes for a pep talk in our office.

     

    Affleck stars alongside Chris Cooper, Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Costner, Maria Bello, Craig T. Nelson and Rosemarie DeWitt. Roger Deakins, the Coen Brothers' go-to cinematographer, shot it, so it should at least look nice.

    "The Company Men" opens Oct. 22.
