In Darling Companion, Beth 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 and an empty nest at home, Beth forms a special bond with the rescued animal.

- Quick review:
- Diane Keaton and Kevin Kline are empty nesters who get a belated new family member — a stray dog. And when the beloved Freeway goes missing, all sorts of name-calling and blame-throwing ensues. A shambling, hardly deep ensemble piece, loose and improvisitory, with Diane Wiest, Mark Duplass, Elisabeth Moss and Richard Jenkins.
