Performance of the Day

Film: "The Family Stone"
Character: Amy Stone
Year: 2005

Rachel McAdams is one of my favorite actors. Even in a hum-drum movie like "The Family Stone", she is great at creating an effective character. In the 2005 film, McAdams plays 'Amy', the intelligent, sarcastic, and somewhat bitchy youngest sister in a large New England family. She's a no-nonsense, tell-it-like it is kind of gal and she sees right through Meredith (Sarah Jessica Parker). There's nothing attractive (she walks around in sweats) or typical about this role, but McAdams is not your typical actor.
