Twenty years since the release of Titanic, the impact of this classic film can still be felt.

Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) and Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) meet on the famous ship, at it travels from the UK to New York in April 1912.

When looking back at Titanic, the film may now seem cheesy, but its cultural impact cannot be denied. It is still quoted and referenced regularly, and it seems to be a film that everyone has seen.

Titanic thrust both Winslet and DiCaprio into the spotlight, and for a film released early in their careers, they both give amazingly emotional performances which are defiantly worth a watch.

Titanic is on Film4 at 9pm.
