Darling Companion trailer

24 January, 2012 by IF

Darling Companion, starring Kevin Kline and Diane Keaton, is the story of a woman who loves her dog more than her husband. And then her husband loses the dog.

On a wintry day, Beth (Keaton) saves a bedraggled lost dog from the side of the freeway. Struggling with her distracted, self-involved husband Joseph (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 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.


The film is directed by Lawrence Kasdan who penned such classics as Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Darling Companion is set for an April release in the US. No release date has been announced in Australia.
