Do you remember that scintillating famous love movie? TITANIC!
“I’ll never let go, Jack,” Rose (Kate Winslet) whispers as she drops Jack’s (Leonardo DiCaprio) lifeless corpse into the ice-cold Atlantic after the Titanic sinks. By this point in James Cameron’s sweeping saga from 1997, viewers everywhere have usually been reduced to tears, having followed
the story of these crazy teens—she from the first class; he from steerage—who found true love aboard the great ocean liner.
