Dialogue in a Vignette: Coffee & Cigarettes

Coffee and Cigarettes (2003) was written and directed by Jim Jarmush. The movie offers many excellent lessons on dialogue, characters, and parallel plots. If high schoolers were allowed to watch this film, I think an engaging assignment might be for them to write another scene for the film. We wouldn’t actually be filming the scenes, so the cigarette aspect hopefully wouldn’t be an issue.
