Titanic was the biggest ship ever built in the world. She was a White Star ocean liner, built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. There were three classes: 1st class, 2nd class, and 3rd class. 3rd class was the poorest class, where 1st was the richest. The ship was known as 'unsinkable', but sadly the great luxury ship stuck an iceberg in April 1912. There were not enough lifeboats for everyone and 1,502 people died falling into cold ocean waters. There were only 700 survivors who got saved by the Carpathia, a passenger steamship that was sailing from New York to Fiume on the night of Sunday, 14 April 1912.

Trama del film - Movie Plot

The film opens in modern times and shows an expedition team diving where the Titanic sunk, taking along with it the famous 56-Carat blue diamond. When the diving mission is telecast on television, a 101-year-old woman, Rose Calvert, claims to be the woman who wore the famous diamond. She then tells the story of the Titanic and her love story too. The viewers are taken back in time, to the year 1912, when Rose was 17 years old and she is boarding the ship in Southampton with her mother and her arrogant, rich  fiancèe Caledon Hockley.  
Rose feels very suppressed and one night decides to commit suicide by jumping off the front of the boat, but a poor artist, Jack Dawson, saves her and they become friends. Her mother and her fiancee don't like Jack, but Rose and  him fall in love. Cal gives Rose a beautiful diamond necklace, but she decides to leave the ship with Jack and dump Cal forever. One night the boat hits the iceberg and Rose and Jack fall in the ocean. They are clinging onto a door, but Jack freezes to death. The rescue boats come and Rose is saved. 
At the end of the movie we see Rose, in 1996,  throwing the diamond her fiancee gave her into the ocean.

  1. GRAZIE MILLE!!!!!

  2. It Was non She Was.

    1. Traditionally ships have been referred to using the feminine pronouns (even ships named after men, such as the USS Abraham Lincoln), as well as countries and oceans. The origins of this practice are not certain, and it is currently in decline (though more common for ships, particularly in nautical usage, than for countries).
