you know what i love about the movie titanic?
okay, there’s a lot.
but one thing in particular i love is the character of Rose. usually dramatic love stoies, especially period pieces, involve a brave and chivalrous man who puts his life on the line for the woman he loves. and we’re all supposed to swoon over his bravery or whatever.
the opposite happens in titanic. rose is on the fucking lifeboat. getting off is a death wish. but she does it out of love. she risks her life for love. that’s some courageous selfless love right there.
i only watch this movie like once a year and every time it’s fucking amazing.
