The Last Titanic Survivor (an article + exercises)
The night of April 14, 1912 was a dark evening for thousands of passengers above the new White Star Liner, Titanic. That night, the biggest ship ever built to that date struck an iceberg and plunged to the bottom of the sea, taking with it around 1,500 souls, sparing only several hundred. The result? Director James Cameron’s new $400 million dollar production entitled Titanic. The movie begins in present day where Brock Lovett (played by Bill Paxton) and crew are underwater, in a submarine, viewing the ship’s wreckage. Lovett had been searching for 3 years for a 56 karat diamond that Rose DeWitt Bukater (played by Kate Winslet) had been given by her fiancé, Cal Hockley (played by Billy Zane) on the ship. When Lovett does come across a safe in her stateroom on the wreckage, they take it back to the surface, and open it, only to find a drawing, mud and decayed ruins. That day, Lovett goes on TV to announce his findings. The 101-year-old Rose (played by Gloria Stuart) happens to see "herself" in the drawing on the news and calls Lovett. She and her granddaughter are flown to a ship in the middle of the Atlantic to meet with Brock. Rose then begins to recall her experience on the Titanic. Back in April of 1912, a young traveling artist, Jack Dawson (played by Leonardo DiCaprio), wins a ticket for Titanic in a poker game and sets sail with an immigrant friend of his on the tremendous ocean liner’s maiden voyage. On the ship, he sees Rose and immediately falls in love with her, without even meeting her. One night, troubled by her engagement to Cal and feeling hopelessly trapped in her rich family’s lifestyle, Rose runs to the stern (end) of the ship and climbs over the railing, contemplating suicide. Fortunately, Jack had seen her run by and assists her to safety. The next hour of the movie consists of their interaction with each other and how they fall in love, etc. And half-way through this 3 and a half hour movie, fiction collides with fact, and the Titanic strikes the gigantic iceberg. The rest is history—mixed in with this fictitious love story, of course.
