Who would you think of if someone asked you to name your favorite screen orliterary couple? Would it be Rhett & Scarlett, Elizabeth Bennett & Mr. Darcy,Lancelot & Guinevere? My favorite is none of the above as much as I love all theirstories and have read and re-read, watched and re-watched the adaptations ofGone With The Wind, Pride & Prejudice and The Legend of King Arthur over andover again.
As much as I love them, and it’s interesting that all my favorites are set in thepast, they don’t quite hit the romantic spot that puts my absolute favorite does.This is a couple I wish I’d created, a couple whose story I wish had come into myimagination fully-formed and ready to tell. It has everything.
My favorite on screen couple were the hero and heroine from a movie releasedin 1997. A movie that earned the actress and director an Oscar and at the time, Ithink topped all previous box office ticket sales for a single movie. Any guesses?
No? Drum roll please…
My favorite onscreen couple are Jack and Rose from Titanic. Played to perfectionby the beautiful Kate Winslet and gorgeously handsome Leonardo DiCaprio.
These two are the perfect romantic couple from their entirely differentbackgrounds, to the passion they can’t contain, the internal demons that hauntthem and their ultimate fight to be together. Titanic is an epic film in every sensebecause it has something for everyone, male or female, young or old.
As well-known as the setting for this romantic tale is, it is Jack and Rose whomake the movie. We are routing for them from the very first scenes, even beforethey come together and when the do meet…woo-hoo, sexual fireworks abound!
Great movie, great couple, great story – in fact, I’m going to put the DVD on rightnow, lol!
