Director: Sam Mendez

Genre: Drama and Romance
This film reunites three of the Titanic starts. Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet and Kathy Bates. I felt it didn’t really work Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet being the lead actors. As good as they both are. Brilliant acting and the cinematography is well done. I often wonder is this what their lives would have become if they had survived Titanic? Based on a novel by Richard Yates. I have given this film a low rating because although it is very well acted it is extremely dreary and depressing and has not really got a decent plot to hold your interest. At the Golden Globe Awards in 2009 Kate Winslet won for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama.
