The following quiz is a 30-question multiple choice quiz on Lasse Hallström's 1993 coming of age drama "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" that stars Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio. 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, characterization, cinematography, conflict, figurative language, foreshadowing, inferences, irony, plot, point of view, sound, story, subtext, symbolism, and themes.
