Titanic

DOWN & DIRTY:
Drama: Two lovers from different parts of society must deal with their differences and the fact that they're on board the doomed ship, the Titanic.

NITTY GRITTY:
Brock Lovett (BILL PAXTON) and his oceanographic crew have been searching the wreck of the R.M.S. Titanic for a huge blue gem, "The Heart of the Ocean," originally worn by Louis XVI that today would be one of the most valuable jewels in the world.

His crew finds a painting of a nude woman wearing what appears to the necklace he's looking for. Thousands of miles away, Rose (GLORIA STUART), a survivor of the famous tragedy, sees the story on TV and recognizes the sketch.

Rose flies out to the middle of the ocean to meet Lovett miles above where the wreck lies, she explains that she's the person in the sketch and then goes to tell her story about the Titanic.

Eighty-five years earlier, as a young woman, Rose DeWitt Bukater (KATE WINSLET) comes from high society and is engaged to marry tycoon Cal Hockley (BILLY ZANE), a wealthy man who doesn't treat her well.

Her mother urges Rose to put up with his behavior so that they'll remain in the wealthy upper class of life. Rose, however, can't stand it anymore, and once at sea, climbs onto the stern railing of the Titanic, preparing to jump to her death.

Her luck changes when Jack Dawson (LEONARDO DiCAPRIO), a third class passenger who won his way on board in a card game, stops her from jumping.

A romance flowers between the two, much to the dismay of Cal and Ruth.

Molly Brown (KATHY BATES) thinks it's a hoot that Jack's stirring things up a bit and helps him. Rose and Jack's love is threatened, when Cal's assistant, Lovejoy (DAVID WARNER), plants the jewels on Jack and accuses him of theft.

Then the Titanic hits THE iceberg and begins to sink. As the ship takes on water Captain Smith (BERNARD HILL) and Blue Star director Bruce Ismay (JONATHAN HYDE) try to figure out what to do.

Amid the chaos, Jack and Rose try to stay together as long as they can.

THE ENDING:
Jack and Rose climb to the very rear of the ship as it sinks. They are among the last to go into the water. Jack finds a piece of wood and pushes Rose up on it. There's no room for him so he stays in the water talking to Rose, telling her to be strong and she's gonna survive.

Jack freezes in the water and sinks to the bottom of the ocean. Rose is saved and lives a full exciting life.

WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
In the final scene, did "old" Rose die in her sleep or just dream about going back to all her friends....and Jack on the Titanic?
