PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
A seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic.
The second film about the Titanic to show the ship splitting in two and First Officer William Murdoch committing suicide, after the 1996 television miniseries directed by Robert Lieberman.
Thirteen meters; you should see it.
Brock Lovett: OK; take her up and over the bow rail.
Just before he shoots himself, Murdoch gives a military salute with his palm facing down. Many believe that the Titanic, being an English ship with English crew, would have its officers salute the British way with their palms facing out. But only the British Army and Air Force salute this way. The British Royal Navy salutes "in the American manner" with palm facing down, widely attributed to the fact that historically sailors would have very dirty hands thus unfit to display in polite company let alone the Queen.
There are no opening credits after the title has been shown.
