Titanic The Scene Where Rose Tries To Attempt Suicide And Jack Saves Her Why Is This A Good

At the end of Titanic, why does Rose throw away the necklace?

It's the whole reason she went to the boat in the first place.If you think about it, why would Rose, a woman of advanced age and delicate health, take such a physically demanding journey to a ship in the middle of the ocean, just to tell a long, rambling story that she could have told over the phone, or on the mainland had the crew gone to visit her instead?She wanted to go to the Keldysh because the vessel was over the Titanic's resting place. She told the story because it was a central, defining chapter of her life that deserved to be heard. And Jack's sacrifice, and his place in her life, deserved to be honored.So she told them the story in all its heartbreaking detail, in the most appropriate place in the world for it, the place where he gave his life for her.Then she did what she came to do. She returned the necklace to the ocean. This was done for a few reasons.One, it reveals to the audience that Rose still had the necklace with her all this time, instead of using it—cashing it in—to start her new life in America as an otherwise penniless immigrant. She couldn't use her real name or anything from her previous life, or her fiance would have found her and dragged her back into that prearranged marriage. The fact that she still had the necklace meant that she built her life in America from nothing, and that it meant too much to her to let go of. This says a great deal more about how strong Rose had become.Secondly, it shows that she has loved Jack all her life, even through future marriages. She's given that place in her heart to Jack for all time. She's never forgotten him or what he did for her.Finally, she's letting Jack go. By dropping the necklace in the ocean, she's ensuring no one else ever finds it, essentially giving it to Jack's memory forever. That's the true reason she went all the way out to the research vessel over Titanic: it was her opportunity to give the necklace to Jack, so that it was never worn by some other woman, converted to cash by anyone else upon her death... the Heart of the Ocean was her own heart, in the romantic sense. And it belonged to Jack."A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets."She then rests in peace, everything in her life finally where it belongs.

Titanic (1997) Rose to frozen - to - death Jack: "I'll never let go; I promise..." What exactly does it mean?

Never let go of...what?

Does it mean she won't give up, that she'll try to get rescued and go on with her life that Jack sacrificed himself to save?


This movie needs to be preserved forever...it's art, it's history....we won't have a film like this ever again (considering the trashy movies produced today)

The scene in Titanic where Rose saves Jack with the axe could have been more dramatic than it already is?

well, she could have hacked off his hand and thereby making it imperative that she apply a tourniquet or find a first aid kit. you probably can't get much torque swinging an axe in water up to your neck but i'm not an expert since i've never attempted it.

Titanic: The scene where Rose tries to attempt suicide and Jack saves her :) Why is this a good scene?

To me, because it shows how a young wealthy woman who is used to having everything in life feels empty and overwhelmed with her duties, whereas Jack, having nothing to his name, enjoys the simple things in life, when a lot of people would think that it is he other way around: having a lot of money grants happiness.

Is the "Jack and Rose" love story in Titanic movie true? Or they just took advantage of the tragedy and capitalized on it?

Jack and Rose are fictional characters created by James Cameron to serve as his narrative “eyes and ears” in his retelling of the Titanic story. In the end, you can say Rose symbolizes every Titanic survivor and Jack every Titanic victim.To some extent they are composite characters that have taken over certain fragments of the experiences of various real people on the Titanic. For instance, a young actress by the name of Dorothy Gibson had a first-class ticket, but she found first class so uptight that she snuck down to steerage to dance and enjoy herself with third class passengers. This may well be the inspiration for how Rose similarly visits third class to dance with Jack.Incidentally, Dorothy Gibson would star in the first-ever Titanic movie, 1912’s (!) Saved From the Titanic, where she played herself as a Titanic survivor. It was only ten minutes long, but unfortuately all copies are lost.

What would have happened to Jack and Rose if the Titanic hadn't sunk?

I am not sure what law Jack and Rose were breaking by falling in love, and I assume Jack could just as easily apply for immigrant status in New York in 1912 as Rose could [edit: apparently he is American]. The two bigger problems would be that Jack would have no money and Rose would be under enormous pressure from her fiance and mother. The worst-case scenario is that Rose would unhappily capitulate to them and Jack would be left on his own.A happier while realistically possible ending is that Jack and Rose elude the others upon arrival (via some other greeting boat or transportation boat in NY harbor?) and make an escape to build their own lives. Rose would pawn her necklace for immediate needs and Jack would find some labor job, working his way into being a reasonably successful businessman. By the time her mother finds them they are married and have children, and the fiance has long cursed them in his pride and moved on--he dies in 1929 anyway.

How old are jack and rose in the titanic book?

I imagine it must be a novelisation of the film.

Jack Dawson: A penniless artist who travels the world, Jack wins tickets to the RMS Titanic in a card game. He is attracted to Rose's beauty and convinces her out of an attempted suicide. His saving of her life brings him into first-class society for a night, and he shows her a carefree way of life of which she had often fantasized but never realized of doing. I don't believe the film discusses his age.

Rose DeWitt Bukater: A first-class socialite, seventeen-year-old Rose is forced to become engaged to Caledon Hockley so she and her mother can maintain their high status after the death of her father. Feeling trapped, Rose becomes suicidal, but she soon discovers a completely new lease on life when she meets Jack Dawson.

I hope the helps. Good Luck.

In Titanic, where do Rose and Jack meet?

He got busted for trying to rape her. Awkward moments connect even the most polar of peoples.

Question about a scene i did not understand in Titanic?

Hey, so ok i did not understand the scene where Rose is looking at Jack's drawings and how she mentions how he liked that woman because he drew her so much, then he said she was a "one-legged prostitute" and they looked at the drawing and made a weird face. what did that mean?

How can I act like Rose from Titanic?

If you mean the fictional character Rose DeWitt-Bukater, you are so distressed at the thought of spending the rest of your life among rich people, being the pampered wife of the heir to a fortune (Cal didn't start acting like a jerk until he saw his fiancée fraternizing with some bum from third class) that you stand on the railing of the ship's stern, prepared to commit suicide, until some penniless drifter from third class comes to talk you out of it. Then you are prepared to run off with said penniless drifter after knowing him for all of 72 hours, just because he gives an inspiring dialogue at dinner about not knowing where he will end up next, whether it's under a bridge or at a fancy meal with the upper class. (Under a bridge, Rose, did you hear that part?) Then, when the ship starts to sink, instead of remaining on the damn lifeboat, allowing your resourceful penniless drifter to go to the ship's stern himself and probably find that same drifting door and possibly survive until he was picked up, you had to JUMP off the boat, saddle Jack with saving your pampered behind and then he lets you have the floating door and he dies. And THEN, years and years later, after keeping the humongous diamond your jerk fiancé gave you to prove a point that you didn't need him to survive, instead of giving it to the granddaughter who took care of you for years, you throw it overboard at the site of the wreck! What were the odds that you get to return to the wreck site, Rose?? And then, you drift off to Titanic heaven to reunite with the penniless drifter you knew for 72 hours, while people most of whom didn't know you from a load of hay politely clap and wonder why they're applauding some girl who didn't go down on the ship with them. Where's the rest of Rose's family? Like the man she married and had children with? Is he on E Deck? Yes, I loved the movie. I saw it 5 times when it first came out and I still watch it on TV. But I wanted to beat Rose with her own arm regardless.
