First watch movie and Respond on this question. The movie name is “the war of the Roses”(1989)

As you know from watching in class, Oliver and Barbara Rose are a couple whose marriage has turned sour. Countless arguments, petty disagreements and fights began eating away at the pair as their relationship progressed.

Please use as many examples you recall from the film when responding to the following questions. You may also include examples from your real-life if it makes sense to offer a comparison.

1) Thinking back to Chapter 4 and the notion of perception consider the following:

Many of the tense exchanges between Oliver and Barbara were fueled by their perceptions of each other in each situation. As an example, Oliver uses her contract to smash a bug, to which Barbara perceives as Oliver smashing her dreams? or Oliver being uninterested.

It?s easy for anyone to be short-tempered when we?re rushed, stressed or distracted. This, as a result, causes a certain influence on our perceptual accuracy and our behavior, which in turn then provide an opportunity for massive mistakes and breakdowns in our communication exchanges and relationships.

Discuss two examples for both Barbara and Oliver where perceptions of each other created a hostile communication environment. Be sure to consider each character?s physiological states and physiological traits to expand your answer.

2) Chapter 3 explored our notion of self and self-image management. Use it as a guide while you answer the following question:

a) Barbara took issue with Oliver?s behavior in certain situations. As an example, she ?hated? his fake laugh and how he behaved around the partners.

Recall any other examples from the film that identity conflicts for both Barbara and Oliver influenced their relationship.

3) Considering the concepts of effectiveness and appropriateness from Chapter 1, recall examples from the film where Barbara and Oliver were both effective and appropriate in their communication exchanges.

4) Chapter 1 also talks about ?Communication Competence?. Having viewed the film, discuss/rate Barbara and Oliver in terms of her communication competence?

Be sure to offer examples, and also state who you believe to be more competent, including why he or she is; additionally, offer your suggestions for ways the pair could improve their respective communication competencies.

5) Things don?t end well for the Roses. Chapter 9 covers the stages of relationship development.

a) Using material from the chapter, explore the Rose?s marriage through each stage of relationship development. Give examples from the film for each stage.
b) For each stage and example/situation you cited, offer what things (using terms and concepts from the entire text), Barbara and Oliver could have done differently.
