"The Family Stone"

by Ashley Woodcock
woodcock_ashley@yahoo.com

In this film, we see many known stars, Dermot Mulroney, Diane Keaton, Sarah Jessica Parker, Clair Danes, Rachel McAdams, Luke Wilson, and Craig T. Nelson. This is a romantic family comedy that's sure to make you laugh and cry all at once.

Everett Stone (Dermot Mulroney) comes home for the holidays, bringing his girlfriend, Meredith (Parker), with him. Neredith is a rich, city, business girl who does not fit in with the Stone family.

When the two of arrive, Meredith grows nervous. When meeting the Stone's, Meredith realizes that she does not belong, but is willing to try it anyways. The Stone's make it even more difficult for her to fit in, as they pull jokes on her and talk to her with sarcasm.

Because Everett's family make Meredith feel uncomfortable, she leaves the Stone house and calls her sister, Julie (Danes), to stay with her at the Inn. That is when the real trouble begins.

Meredith sends Everett off to pick Julie up at the bus stop. Meanwhile she tries once more to fit in, and once more she fails and is tortured buy Everett's sister Amy (McAdams).

Later on that night, conversation starts and Meredith makes a comment that gets everyone's attention. As she tries to clarify what she had said, she ends up making things worse and is jumped on by Everett's father (Nelson). Meredith leaves anger stricken and is followed by the only Stone who made her feel welcome, Everett's brother Ben (Wilson).

In the end, relationships are lost and new ones begin while new friendships are found. Hearts are broken, and hearts are mended. This film is very memorable. Definitely worth watching.
