Non-verbal Messages Project
After viewing the 1982 version of the movie “Victor Victoria” (with Julie Andrews and
James Garner), . Such cues may be used to establish any of the aspects
of the story line, such as time, location, relationships, emotions, mood, etc. In addition,
due to the subject of the movie, they may be used to establish and enhance the gender of
the characters. Keep in mind that such gender-based cues may include subtle messages
to make males seem more masculine, females more feminine. In this particular movie
they may also be used to make a male seem feminine and a female seem masculine. Also
remember that nonverbal cues can include gestures, facial expressions, body movements,
body appearance, eye contact, the use of space, colors, touch, even the use of silence.
