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 doctor 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, a distraught Beth enlists the help of the few remaining guests and a mysterious young woman (Ayelet Zurer) in a spiritual search for her new canine soul mate. Each member of the search party is affected by the adventure, which takes them in unexpected directions, from the comically absurd to deeply felt emotions. The veteran supporting cast includes Richard Jenkins, Sam Shepard, Elisabeth Moss, Mark Duplass, Diane Wiest, and a companion named Freeway. (103 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Bodyheat (81), The Big Chill (83), Grand Canyon (91), Mumford (93), Dreamcatcher (03).

Sponsored by Richard Stein Design.
