Director: Lawrence Kasdan USA, 2012, 104 minutes; PG
Darling Companion is about and for an audience that really doesn�t get enough respect: women of a certain age who love their dogs too much. It�s far from a great movie � but it has Diane Keaton, and that�s enough. Keaton plays Beth, the wife of an officious doctor (Kevin Kline). Freeway (played by a charmingly shaggy mixed-breed) is scooped up from the side of an interstate and becomes Beth�s lifeline. DC is mostly about what happens when the dog gets lost. All of Beth�s late-life frustrations pour helplessly forth. Coming along on the search-and-redemption mission are Penny (Dianne Wiest); her new boyfriend (Richard Jenkins); Penny�s son Bryan (Mark Duplass); and the couple�s caretaker, Carmen (Ayelet Zurer), a gypsy who can sense where Freeway has gone. Sam Shepard is the town sheriff. Keaton imbues Beth with a sorrow, warmth, wisdom, and rage that feel earned. Her performance is an extension of worn, resilient grace. --Boston Globe
