Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “Hustlers,” with J-Lo and a diverse cast playing empowered strippers, looks like a lot of fun. TV/Streaming: Netflix’s “The Spy,” with Sascha “Borat” Baron Cohen as an undercover Israeli in early 1960s Syria, looks watchable…”Country Music,” Ken Burns’s latest epic for PBS, kicks off on Sunday. Music: Teodor Currentzis is classical music’s latest bad-boy conductor: sample his work here. Books: I can’t stand the bleakness of the series adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” but I’ve just read the follow-up to “Handmaid’s” — “The Testaments” — and I’m happy to report it is a smidgen less bleak. Sports: Thank God there’s Premier League football this weekend — last week I was forced to watch American football! Finally: My dog doesn’t bark angrily except when he sees Trump on a TV screen — I have a smart dog.
