In the Movies Ep. 15: The Family Stone & Ensemble Casts

We're getting Christmassy on the podcast! We have fun talking in depth about one of our favorite Christmas movies, The Family Stone. We break it down how characters are introduced, what characters tell us about themselves and other characters, and how creepy Everett actually is. We talk way too long about the movie until we briefly talk about other types of ensemble movies. We agree the separate-but-connected type never really works, and how movies like The Avengers use an ensemble cast in an entirely different way.
