How Can I Cite A Movie?

QUESTION
How Can I Cite A Movie?
Hi, can anybody cite this movie please:
A Few Good Men.

I watched it on DVD in school and now I need to cite it in MLA format for my essay.

ANSWER
This is the format for the MLA movie citation:

Movie Title. Producer name. Director’s name. Performers’ names. Descriptor for the recording
(videocassette, DVD, etc.). Distributor, Year of Release.

-Abbreviation can be used for “producer”, “director” and “performers”.

Here are some examples:

Howard’s End. Prod. Ismael Merchant. Dir. James Ivory. Perf. Anthony Perkins, Vanessa Redgrave, and
Helena Bonham Carter. Videocasette. Columbia TriStar Home Video, 1997.

What Lies Beneath. Prod. Steve Starkey, Dir. Robert Zemeckis, Perf. Harrison Ford, Michelle Pfeiffer,
and Diana Scarwid. DVD. Twentieth Century Fox, 2001.

Here is yours:

A Few Good Men. Prod. David Brown, Dir. Rob Reiner, Perf. Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, and
Jack Nicholson. DVD. Columbia Pictures, 1992.
