Movie Relationship (Due October 17)
Pick a movie relationship that you find particularly interesting (family, friendship, romantic). Using social penetration theory, please analyze that relationship. What stage/layer are the people in? How did they get there? Did they utilize all of the parts of the theory (breadth, depth, valence, etc.)? Does your selected relationship conform to the theory? How does it? If it doesn’t, how does it diverge?
