Nothing on earth could come between them.
Rose DeWitt Bukater (Winslet) and Jack Dawson (DiCaprio) are two passengers from very different walks of life. She’s a high-society girl, suffocated by both her fiancé (Zane) and her Mother. He’s a travelling artist who won his ticket in a poker game. A chance (and rather dramatic) encounter sparks an unlikely companionship between the two of them and a beautiful romance inevitably follows. As their two worlds collide we witness both the stiffness of life in first class and the charming liberation of the lower decks. Rose and Jack’s story would make for a great film in itself, but when iceberg meets ship the drama reaches a new level. Class divides become a matter of life and death, and people’s true natures, good and bad, are revealed...
Titanic is a must-see, and not just for fans of romance and period drama. The visual experience is stunning in itself, even more so on the big screen, and this is matched by an engaging narrative, beautifully told through a series of memorable scenes. Titanic offers the classic intrigue of a love which transcends social strata, as well as first-rate cinematography, set design, and acting performances. It’s a romance, a disaster movie, and a historical drama all rolled into one. With 11 Oscars under its belt, Titanic is a film which is always worth a watch, whether or not you’ve seen it 5 times before.Claire Heywood
