01.24.12 by Ryan
Academy Award–nominated writer-director Lawrence Kasdan's last two directorial efforts — 2003's Dreamcatcher and 1999's Mumford — weren't critical disasters, but didn't exactly set the box office on fire, either. Still, after writing the scripts for Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Empire Strikes Back, and writing and directing movies like The Big Chill, Silverado and Grand Canyon, we're always interested in what Kasdan is working on.
His latest movie, Darling Companion, stars Diane Keaton as a woman who finds a dog that she eventually loves more than her husband (Kevin Kline). When her husband loses the dog, she enlists a search party to help find it, including a psychic (Ayelet Zurer). Set for an April release, Yahoo! has released the first trailer for the movie.
Here's the synopsis for 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. 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, sometimes deeply emotional and ultimately towards love.
Kasdan co-wrote Darling Companion with his wife, screenwriter Meg Kasdan (Grand Canyon). Dianne Wiest and Richard Jenkins co-star.
