I don’t go to the movies much. As a matter of fact, the last movie I saw in the theater was “What Women Want” way back in 2000. I also just cancelled my Netflix subscription. (I do have Amazon Prime videos, so its not a total wasteland around here.)
A couple of weeks ago, I received an e-mail from Claire at Sony Pictures Classics with a link to the trailer for a movie to be released in April. Huh? You want me to review a movie? Me? Well, not really … She just wanted to share, and asked me to do the same.
The movie, “Darling Companion” stars Mark Duplass, Richard Jenkins, Diane Keaton, Kevin Kline, Elisabeth Moss, Sam Shepard, Dianne Wiest, Ayelet Zurer and an adorable dog!
On the side of a busy freeway, a woman finds the love, devotion, commitment, and courage she needs – all wrapped up in a bloodied stray dog who becomes her “darling companion.” When the beloved canine goes missing, a shaggy-dog search adventure plays out, drawing together friends and family and rekindling a lifelong love.
“Darling Companion” opens in New York and Los Angeles on April 20th, and I can’t wait for it to come to the D.C. area.
This just might be the one movie that gets me back into the theater.
(No money, reneumeration, dog biscuits, or movie tickets (hint hint) exchanged hands between me and Sony Pictures. Just so you know.)
