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, sometimes deeply emotional and ultimately towards love.

Common Sense Says
Prickly couple loses dog, rediscovers love in ho-hum drama.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the titular partner in Darling Companion is a beloved dog who helps a woman (played by Diane Keaton) fill an emotional vacuum. When the dog gets lost in the woods, her family comes together to track it down, leading to a chance for reconnection. There's some swearing ("s--t," "ass," etc.), social drinking, sex talk, and a few suggestive scenes, but this is primarily a simple drama about rekindling love. While the movie's theme and older characters may not hold much appeal for younger viewers, the film's messages offer an important lesson for anyone who's ever been in a long-term relationship.
