Review for Darling Companion PG-13 Drama 1:43
by  John Thielking

Darling Companion chronicles the life of lonely housewife Beth Winter (Diane Keaton), who is married to a neglectful, absent minded surgeon named Joseph (Kevin Kline).  The movie follows what happens to their family after Beth finds a stray dog by the side of the freeway.  They name the dog Freeway.  Since Freeway has to be attended to by a charming young vet, this proves to be a matchmaking situation for Beth's daughter Grace (Elisabeth Moss), who eventually marries the vet. One year later, the family is vacationing and Freeway runs off after a deer and gets lost. A family gypsy tries to help track down the dog.  Will they find the dog before they head back to civilization or will they all get lost in the woods while trying to track him down?  Tune in and find out. Three stars.

This movie ranks as nonviolent because it has only three on screen violent scenes. A man threatens to shoot another man, a man falls and hurts himself and someone has a dream of a dog being chased by wolves.

The previews include nonviolent previews for Moonrise Kingdom and To Rome With Love and somewhat violent previews for Hysteria and Bernie.
