The following quiz is a 25-question multiple choice quiz on John Madden's 1998 romance period drama "Shakespeare in Love" that stars Joseph Fiennes and Gwyneth Paltrow. The quiz can be used in an English, film studies, or media studies class and is not a trivia quiz about the story or production anecdotes; it is also not a simple, low-level comprehension quiz based on events in the film. The quiz contains high level, critical thinking questions on the understanding through evaluation levels of Bloom's revised taxonomy model. The quiz assesses a taker's understanding of the film's acting, allusions, camera movement, characterization, cinematography, conflict, costumde design, editing, figurative language, foreshadowing, inferences, plot, setting, story, subtext, symbolism, and themes.
