The Family Stone Mrs Rachel L McGovern
Brilliant! The Family Stone is actually a Christmas movie. At times very funny, other times extremely touching. Diane Keaton is especially brilliant, Luke Wilson is hilarious and all-in-all the film has a great ensemble cast. You can watch it every year, especially at Christmas.Your family will never appear disfunctional again!!!
