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.
