Synopsis: A seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic.

This film almost deserves a rating of 6. It is a masterful telling of the fateful last trip of the Titanic and the lives of those on board. It is long, but not at all boring. Director and writer James Cameron accomplished in this movie what he just missed doing in Abyss; a gigantic epic drama that iss also excellent.

Following the two main characters Jack [Leonardo DiCaprio] and Rose [Kate Winslet] we see both sides of Atlantic travel in general and the Titanic in particular. Both first class - very swank, and steerage - not quite as nice. This young Romeo and Juliet learn of each others ways and, of course, fall in love.

The climatic event - the sinking - is incredibly well done in every respect. It is horrifying and thousands died and the film does not gloss over this at all. It is around the half-way mark of the film that the designer of the ship, who is onboard and has assessed the damage from hitting the iceberg, tells the captain that the ship is going to sink and soon; there is absolutely nothing that can be done to prevent it. The entire second half is that process.
