This movie will be launched on April 20th. On the side of a busy freeway, a woman finds the love, devotion, commitment, and courage she needs â all wrapped up in a bloodied stray dog who becomes her âdarling companion.â When the beloved canine goes missing, a shaggy-dog search adventure plays out, drawing together friends and family and rekindling a lifelong love. It will be especially meaningful to anyone who has been part of a family. In general the cast is really good mainly the acting is perfect-Beth (Diane Keaton) is at her mature best. When Joseph (Kevin Kline) becomes distracted by a phone call during a walk with Freeway, the dog disappears. Furious, is the best part due Beth is emotionally all over the place, inexplicably rueful of Joseph, and has an irrational fixation on Freeway. This movie isnât about men and women, itâs about believability. Kline comes off as a stand-up guy that simply has little patience for odd behavior.
Although titled Darling Companion this is by no means a âDog Movieâ. Ultimately it is about relationships in a fairly idealistic American family that only some of which are interesting. For those that are not huge fans of love stories especially ones that seem to be on the sad side because those to me are not easy to watch. However, if it was a film based on humor and love and as a viewer you would really enjoy it.
Kelvin Kline believes that âthousands of dogs that donât get adopted and get put down; that is a shame. There marvelous companions. I have a dog, fish, bird, and children (laughs). I am their primary caretaker.â He noticed that the cast in the film were mainly filled with animal lovers. The movie is basically about love, âshort and long term companionships, between humans and animals. Men and women as well as children and adults.â Kline also stated that his character was devoted to his patients. You do not want to miss out on this movie, where love for the animals is most important for human nature.
