Kevin Kline & Lawrence Kasdan Talk ‘Darling Companion’

DARLING COMPANION:On a wintry day, Beth (Diane Keaton) saves a bedraggled lost dog from the side of the freeway. 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 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. Here’s the trailer:

I’m not going to hide it – this is the most indecisive, convoluted and completely nonsensical trailer I’ve seen in years – I have no idea what this is supposed to be or who its targetted to. But I feel a bit better about it now that I’ve seen these interview bits and pieces with legendary director Lawrence Kasdan (The Big CHill & Grand Canyon) and Kevin Kline.
