Our rating:

James Cameron's Oscar-laden epic tells of the first and final voyage of the 'unsinkable' luxury liner through the love story of two very different passengers. Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jack Dawson, a brash chancer in the steerage section of the ship who talks his way up to the staterooms and fancy restaurants, where he meets Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet). She is promised to Cal Hockley (Billy Zane) in a loveless match but soon falls for Jack.

The first half of the film establishes their story, the second the fate of the Titanic once it has struck the iceberg. The destinies of all the crew and passengers are mirrored by the tragedy that befalls the two lovers, while spectacular special effects recreate the ship's fate.
