Running Head: COMMUNICATION VIA “THE KID” 1
Interpersonal Communication as lost from the movie “The Kid”
COMMUNICATION VIA “THE KID” 2 The interpersonal communication in the movie “The Kid” is unique in some aspects. Russ, the middle aged character, has an indifference to everyone he communicates with at the beginning of the movie. As the movie progresses, you can see how Russ’s interpersonal communication skills slow evolve from that indifference, impersonal and high context person to one of low context with manner principles and most aware of those he is actually communicating with. Russ’s mannerisms and communication with others at the …show more content…
He even goes so far as to have a one on one conversation with a person he had only briefly spoken with earlier in the film. Showing you how his interpersonal skills are evolving. How he communicates with a close friend, opening up more and even showing some emotion. It is not seen much within the movie and just shows the viewer how communication with a stranger, yet someone close is achieved.
Russ in the beginning is loud, boisterous and challenging. He is aloof with most of the characters in the movie. As he starts to communicate more with his younger self, he begins to this change. You see how his tone changes with the characters. How is not so aloof and his voice becomes even toned (with the right amount of inflexion) with most people. Then at the end, his voice is soft where is should he, you don’t hear him raising his voice and you can even catch a bit of emotion more in his voice. Russ even gets physically close to other characters. Giving hugs and showing more affection towards those he is truly close to. Something you did not see throughout most of the movie.
You can look at the culture within the movie. How people communicate with each another, be it with the opposite sex, or adult to child. How Russ speaks with his assistant Janet, is a bit different then how he talks to Amy, the love interest in the movie. It goes back to the boss and employee, yet they are a bit

Throughout the first half of Communication 101: Introduction to Human Communication we have been introduced to and discussed a lot of new concepts, ideas, and terms. All of this new material has been pertinent to how humans interact with one another, while also informing us of the why and how behind these interactions as well. The amount of new information we have learned would be impossible to cover and apply to one piece of pop culture, but a lot of what we have learned is relatable to the movie 50 First Dates. This 2004 movie featuring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore features numerous examples of normative relationships and key concepts that we have learned about in class. In this paper I will not only introduce communication terms
Unit 3.3.1 – How communication with children and young people differs across different age ranges and stages of development
John Hughes’ 1985 film, The Breakfast Club, gives countless examples of the principles of interpersonal communication. Five high school students: Allison, a weirdo, Brian, a nerd, John, a criminal, Claire, a prom queen, and Andrew, a jock, are forced to spend the day in Saturday detention. By the end of the day, they find that they have more in common than they ever realized.
The term interpersonal communication often referred to as dyadic communication sounds a lot more complex than it really is. It is the communication between two people, or face-to-face interaction. There are many different characteristics that separate dyadic communication from other forms of communication, such as being more direct, personal, immediate, spontaneous, and informal. I chose to do an interpersonal communication analysis on the movie Dirty Dancing. In the movie there are two main characters that develop an interpersonal relationship, Frances “Baby” Houseman and Johnny Castle. In the beginning of the movie, Baby is the quiet naïve girl that is always over-looked in the crowd, she becomes infatuated with Johnny and his talent for dancing. Johnny holds the reputation of the “bad boy” and many have preconceived ideas about him before they take the opportunity to get to know him. Throughout the movie there are many different concepts of interpersonal communication displayed such as; rigid role relations, the journey towards intimacy, and self-disclosure.
The Breakfast Club is such an interesting movie to use with this topic. The wide range of characters allows for a variety of different interactions. The way we are going to approach this, is to look at each character and examine the different interactions between.
This movie based off of a southern family living in Memphis, Tennessee will show you a true taste of southern hospitality. In every film you have your list of characters along with their personalities and most importantly their motives. Along with the certain qualities of every character comes the ethos, pathos, and logos. Ethos which stands for the goodness of a film and/or ethics goes hand in hand with the sender of a film, Pathos which is the passion and emotions of a film which goes hand in hand with the receiver, and lastly the logos which is the logic/information that sends a message. Each rhetoric sends a message and surely puts a movie together.
Recently, the class watched the movie “Dan in Real Life” and many people would be surprised just how much of this movie relates to what the class is currently learning about. For example, there is the use of nonverbal communication, the use of interpersonal communication, and the use of many other types of communications that are all found throughout the movie.
Interpersonal communication is everywhere in society, both the past, present, and the future. “Marty,” a love story, and a movie made in the fifties, shows many examples of interpersonal communication. In this movie, the main character, Marty, who is a decent, socially awkward man who is pressured by his peers and family to find love and get married. He then gets fed up and goes to a club in town and meets a woman named Claire, who is in similar circumstances to him. Marty and Claire then interact and spend time together and Marty experiences companionship for the first time.

As the their families get to know each other things do not go well. Greg knows that his family is not a typical family so he tries to impress Pam's family by downplaying the strange ways of his parents. This paper studies communication in the movie by looking closely at eight specific communication principles and applying them to eight scenes.
It is impossible to get through life without communicating. Better interpersonal communication skills help us success in different aspects of our life. He’s just not that into you is the movie that I will analyze. In this movie, there are nine main characters and they live intertwine with one another either by being a friend, a couple, friend of a friend. In this paper, I will explore how Gigi is using interpersonal communication on the evolution of personal relationship; and how she applies better communication skills in her relationship with others. Terms that I will apply and analyze in the films are: Perception, stereotype, mind reading, prototype, verbal communication, and the ambiguous of language, the abstract of language,
The film, “The Breakfast Club” is a perfect source for the study of communication theory. It possesses the potential for numerous conversations regarding theories that even the most basic scholar of communication could discuss. For example, there are countless displays of symbolic convergence, symbolic interactionism, relational dialectics, cathartic scenes, identification, and social comparison. When viewing this movie it is hard to ignore these theories being put into practice. They constitute the framework of the relations within the film and serve to facilitate the underlying plot. While these theories each encompass separate meanings, they interweave with one another to create the final product; what the viewer sees and can subsequently dissect using common communication theory. While these theories will be addressed separately, it is crucial to recall the significance that these theories are only able to produce when intertwined with one another.
Throughout the semester, we have been introduced to many topics related to interpersonal communication. I have come to believe that these concepts have allowed me to better understand interactions that occur in our daily lives. My knowledge of these concepts was challenged when asked to relate these notions to a movie. During the time that I was watching the movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, I realized myself grasping onto what was going on and being able to relate certain scenes and situations to topics I had previously learned about. Interactions in My Big Fat Greek Wedding display concepts of conflict and politeness theory, which can be pointed out in a few specific scenes.
However, not every individual acquired effective interpersonal communication skill. There will always be people like Melvin Udall, the main character in the movie: As Good As It Gets, who was absolutely a bad communicator. On the contrary, there are people like Carol, another main character in the movie, who was good at communicating and forming a healthy relationship with other people. In the beginning of the movie, the communication elements
