10 Awesome Movies That Are Simply an Engaging Conversation

Films take the audience on journeys, delving into new stories and introducing viewers to riveting plots and storylines. Films broach multiple genres, including comedy, drama, and action, but one of the most compelling mediums to tell stories is through conversation. Here are ten films utilizing dialogue throughout the majority of the runtime.

The Invitation is perfect for anyone who likes films about cults and/or dinner parties. The film opens with a straight couple arriving at a dinner party for the husband's ex-wife. Strange, right? Correct. The directing in this film leads the viewer to question the hosts' intentions and the guests' safety. And all major plot points occur through conversation.  

8. Malcolm and Marie (2021)

Sam Levinson's feature film received mixed reviews despite Euphoria, his Emmy-award-winning TV series gaining traction. Malcolm and Marie star Zendaya and John David Washington for a nearly two-hour argument between a couple navigating their wavering relationship. If you're a fan of slow-paced noirs, this film is for you.

The title of this movie explains the plot. Andre invites an old friend to dinner to speak of his experience traveling the world while the other party (Wallace) remains in New York and resorts to a life of mediocrity. 

10. The Breakfast Club (1985)

The Breakfast Club merch litters shirts in every mainstream retail store, and a Blu-ray copy of John Hughes' archetypal exploration decorates the shelf of every emerging cinephile. One of the most iconic films of the 80s, The Breakfast Club features five individuals who spend an afternoon together in detention.

We have the jock, the nerd, the goth, the straight-A student, and the burnout, who all come together to understand their differences during a lengthy Saturday detention. In the 80s, kids didn't have a swath of electronic devices to entertain themselves with, so they did what every other person in the 80s did. They talked.
