In a nutshell... A seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic.
Watching Titanic is as heartbreaking for me now as it was when I first saw it as an eight-year-old. James Cameron’s most accomplished movie of his career masterfully brings together the essential narrative and technical components of film-making to achieve a cinematic landmark that enriched the art of movie-making.
Titanic benefits from amazing performances by Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet and Billy Zane as the smarmy antagonist. However, it's Cameron's audacious storytelling that steals the show, convincingly weaving a fictitious love story against the back-drop of a real-life tragedy.
You don’t want to spend over three hours watching Leo and Kate fall in love on a ship that takes nearly an hour to sink.
