On the RMS Titanic’s maiden voyage, American Jack Dawson meets British society girl Rose DeWitt Bukater, who is on her way to America to marry her elitist fiancé Cal. As the unlikely pair begin to fall in love, despite their difference in social standing, the ship hits an iceberg, imperiling the survival of everyone on board.
The highest grossing film for over 10 years until Avatar (2009) knocked it off its top spot. Still holds up well, with high scores across the board, except Rotten Tomatoes audience ratings which is a bit low compared to the others. DiCaprio’s performance is good, but doesn’t compare to his more recent more mature outings.
