For some strange reason I only just saw Titanic for the first time. It was obviously such a horribly tragic love story. And to be honest, I bawled my eyes out at the end.
84 years later a 100-year-old woman named Rose DeWitt Bukater tells the story to her granddaughter Lizzy Calvert, Brock Lovett, Lewis Bodine, Bobby Buell, and Anatoly Mikailavich on the Keldysh about her life set in April 10th 1912, on a ship called Titanic when young Rose boards the departing ship with the upper-class passengers and her mother, Ruth DeWitt Bukater, and her fiancé, Caledon ‘Cal’ Hockley. Meanwhile, a drifter and artist named Jack Dawson and his best friend Fabrizio De Rossi win third-class tickets to the ship in a game. And she explains the whole story from departure until the death of Titanic on its first and last voyage April 15th, 1912 at 2:20 in the morning.
This description doesn’t really do the story justice, but it shows how the movie is laid out. It is soooo good.
I loved jack and his simplistic, honest, kind, loving ways. I didn’t like Rose much until the very end when she had the strength to save herself even though she had just lost the one she loved.
If you haven’t seen the movie and you’re a sucker for love stories, I’d say GO SEE IT!
