How Do You Cite a Quote From a Movie in MLA Format?

To cite a movie quote in MLA style, the title of the film, the director’s name, the studio and the release year are required. If relevant the performer’s name should included, following the director.

The title of the film is written in title case; capitalizing each principal word. Following the title, the abbreviation “Dir.,” precedes the director’s name. This can be followed by the abbreviation “Perf.” and the key performers. A comma separates each performer. The studio name is followed by a comma and the year of release. Each element ends in a period, and finally the word “Film” capitalized and followed by a period. All lines of text following the first are indented.
