The story of a woman who loves her dog more than her husband. And then her husband loses the dog.
In Darling Companion, Beth (Diane Keaton) saves a bedraggled lost dog from the side of the freeway on a wintry day in Denver. Struggling with her distracted, self-involved husband Joseph (Kevin Kline) and an empty nest at home, Beth forms a special bond with the rescued animal.
When Joseph loses the dog after a wedding at their vacation home in the Rockies, the distraught Beth enlists the help of the few remaining guests and a mysterious young woman (Ayelet Zurer) in a frantic search.
Each member of the search party is affected by the adventure, which takes them in unexpected directions; comic, harrowing, and sometimes deeply emotional.
Three Oscar winners star; Diane Keaton, Dianne Wiest and Kevin Kline. Two Oscar nominees costar; Sam Shepard and Richard Jenkins. And an Oscar nominated director steers the ship; Lawrence Kasdan – of this weirdly titled movie.
