THE FAMILY STONE
7.30PM, FOXTEL ROMANCE MOVIES ★★★
Dynamic ensemble comedy about the annual gathering of an eccentric clan at Christmas. The writing is sharp, the performances are both strong and likable, and there’s barely a corny moment throughout. A fine mainstream chuckler. Stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Diane Keaton, Dermot Mulroney, Claire Danes and Luke Wilson and one of the most painfully awkward evening meals you will ever see.
