84 years later a 100-year-old woman named Rose DeWitt Bukator tells the story to her granddaughter Lizzy Calvert, Brock Lovett, Lewis Bodine, Bobby Buell, and Anatoly Mikailavich on the Keldysh about her life set in April 10th 1912, on a ship called Titanic when young Rose boards the departing ship with the upper-class passengers and her mother, Ruth DeWitt Bukater, and her fiancé, Caledon Cal Hockley. Meanwhile, a drifter and artist named Jack Dawson and his best friend Fabrizio De Rossi win third-class tickets to the ship in a game. And she explains the whole story from departure until the death of Titanic on its first and last voyage April 15th, 1912 at 2:20 in the morning. Written by Anthony Pereyra

The perspective of this movie is that it provided a historical recap of the "unsinkable" ship called the Titanic which sailed in 1912. It sunk in the North Atlantic after hitting an iceberg. There were not enough life boats for everyone on the ship. They were in such a state of panic that not all of the life boats were filled prior to launching them. The life boats were filled with women and children. The first class passengers had priority. There was another boat only twelve miles away. The Titanic sent several distress signals to them. If that boat had responded they could have saved the lives of so many people that night. There is only speculation as to why they did not receive the distress signals sent.

There was a Love recap with this movie. Jack and Rose were fictional characters that played on the Titanic. They were both from different classes and from different backgrounds. Jack was considered "poor" and Rose was from a wealthy background about to marry someone who could secure her future. Rose fell in love with Jack on the boat because he showed her a new world. The end of the movie showed what true love is. Rose risked her life to save Jack on the ship. Jack did the same for Rose.

Film makers created this production toward women. They created an amazing love story for the background to get more people involved with the historical part of the film. You are not sure what part of the actual history of it is true. They had to add a twist to get people interacted with the film. The film makers made sure to have you experience this film. When the rough waves hit the actual camera moves like you are on the ship itself. They created this to have the audience feel like they are on the Titanic and experiencing it first hand.
