USA | 1997 | 194 min | PG
A seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic.
Are you ready to go back to Titanic? Of course you are. Everybody is. So with the same enthusiasm of James Cameron quoting his own character’s dialogue upon winning Best Picture in 1998, we’re going to set sail and spend three hours with the fated vessel, its doomed passengers, and Rose DeWitt Bukater).
Plus, Capsule98 creator Randi Bergman will join us for a brief discussion before the screening about why we still care so much about Jack, Rose, and Billy Zane’s wig. And believe me, there’s much to discuss: from oversize diamonds to the loss of Fabrizio to the realization that James Cameron himself is the one who actually draws Kate Winslet, Titanic continues to be a film that delivers life-changing revelations, unforgettable quotes, and endless debates as to whether or not two people could safely float atop a wardrobe door.
After all, Titanic was called the ship of dreams. But I call the movie one of the greatest ever. – ANNE T. DONAHUE
