Darling Companion is about a woman named Beth ( Diane Keaton) who, while driving home from the airport notices a stray dog, just off the freeway. She and her daughter Grace (Elizabeth Moss), take the dog in, as Animal Services says that otherwise he would be put to rest. Kevin Kline plays Beth's husband Dr. Joseph Winter, who grows to love the dog, who they name FREEWAY. Grace and The Vet fall for each other, and soon after get married far away in a mountains cabin. They are joined by friends Dianne Wiest and Richard Jenkins, who join them and FREEWAY for days at the mountain cabin.
The performances are solid and is what you would except from these veteran actors. For me the dog was the best part but is only featured in 15% of the film...they gave the mountains more screen time!
