Film Study- Titanic- Top Oscars 3-Films with 11 wins

There is a three way tie for films that won the most Academy Awards.  As of 2018 the record stands at 11. 

Director/Screenwriter James Cameron wrote and Directed one and it amazed me.  He took a story out of the history books that we all knew the ending of and included not only a second but a third story to give it new life.  The overall storyline; A seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic. This film won 11 Academy Awards.

In general, I do not like love stories, but this one is different.  I love history and this love story is set as the heart of the great ship Titanic.  It is written in time, it’s heart must go on and it did with Young Rose played gloriously by Kate Winslet and the Oscar winning performance of Gloria Stewart as old Rose. That part of the story made this film perfect for me.  Old Rose tells her story to a crew of salvage collectors looking for lost jewels that supposedly went down with the fateful Ship.  It turns out the heart of the ocean, a gigantic diamond they are looking for belongs to Rose, who was a lucky survivor that made it off the Titanic.  

Unfortunately though, her newly found love, Jack, actually an angelic soul mate type character played charmingly by handsome Leonardo DiCaprio saves Rose ( paraphrasing) “in all the ways a person can save another person” but cannot save himself. 

This line from Old Rose does me in:
 “Now you know there was a man named Jack Dawson, and that he saved me in every way that a person can be saved. I don’t even have a picture of him. He exists now only in my memory.”

I cry like a baby at the ending of this film every time I watch it.  Which is often.
