From the Paper:

"The Oscar-winning film Titanic (James Cameron 1997, U.S.A) proved to be one of the most profitable films ever made. In this essay I am going to analyze at a three-minute sequence from the film, where I will be specifically looking at features such as mise-en-scene, editing, framing, sound and lighting. I will then be discussing how these aspects help to reinforce the broader areas such as narrative, genre, representation and style. I am going to particularly focus on the representation of class as I feel that the class system is vividly portrayed in the film."
