Titanic the movie
Main Characters:

Jack Dawson (played by Leonardo Di Caprio): Jack is a poor man from Wisconsin who has been traveling in Europe (mainly Paris). He wins 2 third class tickets for the Titanic in a poker game and boards the ship with his friend Fabrizio. Rose DeWitt Bukater (played by Kate Wislet): Rose is a 17-year old woman from Philadelphia. Rose boards the ship with her fiancé Cal and her mother Ruth.
Summary of the Plot:

Rose is pushed into a marriage by her mother for financial reasons. Rose is not happy with that and attempts to commit suicide. Jack saves her and there the romance and stories begin... Of course Cal forbids Rose to see Jack, but of course she doesn't listen and falls in love. The romance goes on until the Titanic collides with the iceberg. They want to warn Cal and Rose's mother, but Jack gets framed by Cal and is imprisoned. While the Titanic is sinking, Rose helps Jack to escape and they return to the top deck. Cal manages to persuade Rose to get in a lifeboat for a short while until she realizes she can't leave Jack. She leaves the lifeboat and meets Jack in the firstclass stairway. Jack and Rose are being chased by Cal, who has a gun. Cal runs out of ammunition and manages to board a lifeboat. Jack and Rose take refuge on the vertical stern, but eventually they are washed into the freezing Atlantic Ocean. They manage to grab a floating door, which unfortunately has only space for one person. Jack dies from the cold in Rose's arms. Rose is picked up by the RMS Carpathia, where she names herself Rose Dawson. There she sees Cal for the last time, looking for her.
Rose wearing the Heart of the Ocean

One of the major conflicts in the film centers around the location of an expensive diamond necklace, referred to as the 'Heart of the Ocean'. In the Titanic movie, the gorgeous jewel was presented to Rose by her fiancé. The necklace had never been recovered and one of the last scenes in the movie reveals a much older Rose (the older Rose is played by Gloria Stuart), returning the necklace of the depths of the ocean. In reality, while such a necklace did actually once exist, its location has remained a mystery since the one time owner of the necklace, King Louis XVI, died. There are no reports to indicate that the original Heart of the Ocean necklace wound up on board the Titanic. !
