Once she is on board the research vessel, and sees her drawing, she begins to tell her tale to all the crew members and her granddaughter, Lizzie. Right away, the audience is amazed at the life young Rose had, including her fancy clothes, her society name, and a very rich fiance that could take her anywhere and give her pretty much anything. Poor little rich girl, indeed!

2. Titanic Has a Wide Emotional Range

People are in awe at the real footage of the sunken ship, but then that turns to amazement when Rose begins to talk about her life. The audience may experience a deep sense of fear when Rose tries to commit suicide, and then relief when she is rescued by Jack. As the movie goes on, there are many moments that are actually quite funny, like when Jack teaches Rose how to spit.  The emotions then change again when the ship strokes the iceberg, and by the end of the movie, people were literally crying rivers of tears. Talk about an emotional roller coaster!

3. Jack Dawson Is Quite Handsome

4. The Story of the Titanic Is Pretty Accurate

NYtimespaperSome people love history, and some find it boring, so for those that do nto want to do any research on what happened to the RMS Titanic, the 1997 movie tells it pretty accurately. However, people do need to remember this was 1997, so James Cameron based his mega hit movie on the information that was known at that time. Since 1997, more details about the Titanic’s sinking has been discovered through numerous undersea expeditions, which did end up proving some aspects of the movie wrong. However, despite a few minor errors, James Cameron has produced one of the most accurate movies about the sinking of the RMS Titanic ever made. 

5. Titanic Is a Modern Romeo and Juliet Love Story

In the beginning of the movie, Rose being super rich, and Jack being super poor, it seemed as though those two would hate each other becuase they were so different. However, as the movie went on, those two people from opposite ends of the world did finally end up falling in love, and went through a lot in the short time they were together. Though love is strong enough to survive almost anything, a sinking ship is another matter, and while the love Rose had was short, the impact it had on her life was long lasting.
