Storyline

When her parents and fiancé are lost in the Titanic disaster, young Edwina Winfield (Rutherford) shoulders the responsibility of raising her three younger siblings and taking over the reins at her father's newspaper. Although she has no shortage of new would-be suitors, the memory of her lost love continues to haunt her, so she focuses instead on providing a stable home for the children, rather than marrying. But her forcefulness alienates some of the kids, who have plans of their own and rebel against her. Can she hold her fractured family together, and will she ever overcome her ghosts to shake herself out of martyrdom and have a real life of her own? Written by Kay-22

Trivia

No main character mentions the 'Titanic' by name throughout the movie. The only person to say the ships name is the paper boy, after the sinking. The word 'Titanic' can of course be read on the newspaper billboards, the life-ring just prior to the collision and on the ship itself as it flounders. See more »

Goofs

The sinking scenes are out of sync. Several times sections of the ship shown going under water in external shots are above water during closeups. See more »

not bad, but not brilliant either.
23 January 2006 | by hanna66See all my reviews

Movie is not bad, oh no. World is just filled up with them. I think that watching another titanic disaster in a movie after the great James Cameron "Titanic" is just boring. And those true shots from SOS... Not attracting.

But, fortunately, the movie is not only about the titanic disaster. All the story bases on it because parents of four children and one of the children's fiancé died there. Now they have to face the adulthood. Ex-fiancée, as the eldest child, tries to be the parent for her brothers and sister. She has to face the adversities and forget about the only man she ever loved. Others are waiting for her almost at the doorstep ;)

I enjoyed the movie a lot. Especially when I saw the young Hayden Christensen, who played Teddy. (He was so cute!) Pleasant to watch.
