Starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Diane Keaton and Claire Danes, The Family Stone is a comedy about love and family.

The unconventional Stone family gather to meet Meredith (Sarah Jessica Parker), the woman who their eldest son plans to propose to. The family give Meredith a hostile reception and she calls on her sister Julie (Claire Danes) to join her for moral support. Unfortunately for Meredith, the Stones take an instant shine to Julie, and further complications quickly develop.

The Family Stone is released to buy and rent on DVD on April 17 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. We have six copies to give away if you can answer this question: what stone is traditionally used in an engagement ring?

Mark your answers Family Stone and send them on a postcard to the TES address or by email to Remember to include your name and contact details. Entries close April 13.
