Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Paul and Alice's half sister Eloise is getting married! In England! There will be fancy hotels, dinner at "it" restaurants, and a reception at a country estate complete with tea lights and embroidered cloth napkins. They couldn't hate it more. Donna, the matriarch, is now a widow with a penchant for the occasional joint and more than one glass of wine while watching home-decorating shows. Alice is in her thirties, single, smart, stuck in a dead-end job, and mired in a rather predicatable affair with her married boss. Her brother, Paul, lives in Phiadelphia with his older, handsomer boyfriend, who'se recently saying things like "Monogamy is an oppressive heteronormative construct." And then there's Eloise. Perfect, gorgeous, cultured Eloise. The product of Donna's first marriage to a dashing Frenchman, Eloise has a childhood at the best private boarding schools, and her post-college life has been cushioned by a fat, endless trust fund. To top it off, she's infuriatingly kind and decent.
