Opening in theaters on April 20th is a new film from veteran director Lawrence Kasdan (Silverado, Grand Canyon) called Darling Companion. Kasdan co-wrote the film with his wife Meg, and it is was loosely based on an event from their own lives. The film stars an all-star cast of actors that features three Academy Award-winners and two former nominees including Kevin Kline (A Fish Called Wanda), Diane Keaton (Annie Hall), Dianne Wiest (Bullets Over Broadway), Richard Jenkins (The Visitor), and Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff). Rounding out the cast are actor/director Mark Duplass (Jeff, Who Lives at Home), Ayelet Zurer (Angels & Demons) and Elisabeth Moss (TV's Mad Men).

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the pleasure of sitting down and speaking with accomplished director Lawrence Kasdan, as well as his wife and co-writer Meg Kasdan about their work on Darling Companion. The two filmmakers discussed their new movie, the real life incident that inspired the film, working with longtime collaborator Kevin Kline, casting Oscar-winner Diane Keaton, and making their first independent film.
