The Family Stone

The Family Stone was a Christmas based movie released in late 2005. It has an incredible cast starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Diane Keaton, Luke Wilson, Dermont Mulroney, Claire Danes, and Rachel McAdams.

The story involves Dermont Mulrney bringing home his girlfriend for the first time to meet his entire family. He wants them to meet her and love her as he plans on asking her to marry him. Needless to say, things go awry and the family doesn't like her. She decides to leave their home and stay at the local inn with her sister, Claire Danes, who arrives to support her.

Without spoiling the ending too much, both of the sisters find love with someone in the Stone family and they all make peace which is so important to the mother, Diane Keaton, as it is her last Christmas due to a recurrence of cancer.

This movie shows how important the love of a family is needed not just at the holidays, but to get through the hard times. As the tagline says "Feel the love"
