Movie Analysis on Interpersonal Communication

***An APA formatted paper for you to use with this assignment was provided in an announcement on February 10. Click the Announcement tab to find it.

The first step in this assignment is selecting a movie to analyze based on concepts in Interpersonal Communication. (Movie of your choice within last 10 years)

Once you do that, you should answer the following questions based on that movie. Email me if you have any questions.

Please type your answers to the following questions using standard APA formatting (12-point font, double-spaced, Times New Roman, one-inch margins, title page, reference page, etc.).

Remember your paper must be at least 4 FULL pages in length, NOT including title page and reference page. You are welcome to write longer than four pages, but your paper should not be any shorter, or points will be deducted. This paper should include at least 13 textbook terms, explicitly defined, and bolded. You may apply more textbook terms, but the number listed is the minimum required. No in-text citations needed for this paper.

***When you begin your paper make sure to write a couple sentences telling me which movie you chose, why, and the year the movie came out. After the first paragraph, leave the questions in a numbered list. Therefore, the rest of your paper will not be in traditional essay format. I have listed places to add chapter terms so you are clear on what I am looking for, but you are welcome to add more than the minimum required.

YOUR ANSWER IS ALL I WANT NEXT TO THE NUMBER, SO MAKE SURE TO DELETE THE QUESTIONS BEFORE YOU SUBMIT YOUR PAPER!   

1. You have analyzed the characteristics of a competent communicator. Which character in this film do you think is the most competent communicator based on the traits we discussed? Why? (Apply, define, and bold/underline at least 2 chapter terms on communicating or competent communication when answering Q1).

2. As you learned in this course, culture and gender have a big impact on the way we communicate. What are some of the culture and gender differences that effect interpersonal communication in the movie? Provide at least two for culture and two for gender from the movie. (Four examples total – from the movie).

3. Perception influences every aspect of communication. Explain how the main character’s perceptions affect their relationships. Then explain how your own perception influences the way you view the movie.

4. As we know, language is a big factor in interpersonal communication. Give at least three examples of language use in the movie between some of the main characters and use at least one language term with EACH (Apply, define, and bold/underline at least 3 chapter terms on language when answering Q4).  

5. While language is important, we also know that nonverbal communication plays a major role in how we communicate (content vs. relational message). There are many facial expressions in the movie, among other nonverbal expressions, that say a lot more than words. Give at least three examples of nonverbal communication in the movie and use at least one nonverbal communication term with EACH (Apply, define, and bold/underline at least 3 nonverbal communication chapter terms when answering Q5).  

6. How does listening impact the way the characters in the movie relate to one another? Give at least two examples of listening (or not listening) in the movie and use at least one listening term with EACH (Apply, define, and bold/underline at least 2 chapter terms on listening when answering Q6).

7. How do the main characters portray their emotions? Give three examples of emotion displayed in the movie and use at least one emotion-related term with EACH (Apply, define, and bold/underline at least 3 chapter terms on emotion when answering Q7).

8. As we know, conflict and power are a big part of our interaction with others. Give two examples of how conflict and/or power were displayed in the movie.

9. Interpersonal deception is also something we all encounter in relationships – where did you see this evidenced in the movie? Give at least one, quality example of this.

10. Your choice – select any other aspect of Interpersonal Communication that has not already been discussed in the questions above and explain how it relates to the movie. Give at least one, quality example from the movie. For example, you could talk about some of the later chapters in the text. How is social exchange theory evident in the film? In what ways are Knapp’s Relational Stages portrayed? Explain how you see Gibb’s communication climates expressed. Pick out anything else you’d like to write about (that hasn’t been mentioned already in the first nine questions).
