A fictionalized account of the sinking of the RMS Titanic told through the memories of a survivor (also a fictional character, played by veteran actress Gloria Stewart). Using both the intimacy of meticulously reproduced individual spaces aboard ship as well as astonishing special effects recreating the immensity of the 882 foot-long vessel, Titanic swept viewers simultaneously into the romance between Jack (22 year-oldLeonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet), and the heart-wrenching tragedy of the real Titanic, the ship deemed unsinkable.
