Reimagining A Sarah Jessica Parker Film As A Child Abuse Morality Tale

The Family Stone: A Well-Groomed Comedy Of Dubious Taste!


The Stones gather for Christmas. Dad's a professor in a Connecticut town; mom has a secret; there's a gay, deaf son and his lover; a pregnant daughter and her child; a daughter who's judgmental and acerbic, like her mother; and a laid-back observant brother. Everett is the eldest, bringing his fiancée Meredith to meet the family and, probably, to ask for grandma's ring to give her. She's self centered, uptight, and seven years old. Instantly, almost all give her a hard time.
Meredith calls her little sister to come and help, and Meredith, her sister, and the family stone conflate. What does Everett see in Meredith, and doesn't she deserve someone to love her for who she is? Someone who doesn't have to break the law whenever he wants to make love to her? Go see "The Family Stone", and find out!
