How does Cameron show class divisions on this extract of Titanic?

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

How does Cameron show class divisions on this extract of "Titanic"? Titanic was released in 1997 directed by James Cameron. It is about the Titanic which sank on her maiden voyage. Cameron creates a romance between Rose Dewitt Bukater and Jack Dawson. Class divisions are sometimes shown by camera shots. Their way of life is one way in which Cameron shows class divisions. Upper class people take life too serious. They have a strictly planned life style. When dinner is over Rose says to Jack "now they will congratulate each other on being masters of the universe" this indicates that they plan their life. On the other hand lower class people are spontaneous. Jack hands Rose a note at the end of the dinner party. It says 'Make it count. Meet me by the clock.' ...read more.

Middle

Whereas lower class people smoke at the party, anywhere in front of the women. This implies that men and women were not seen as equal. Men could do whatever they wanted, women couldn't. When someone fell over at the lower class party he just got up like nothing happened and no one looked or commented. If this was to happen in the upper class everyone would look at him/her and comment. The upper class behaviour at dinner is very restrained. At dinner the music in the background is slow and classical. In contrast to the music that is being played at the lower class party which is upbeat and loud (Joyful). The clothes that upper class people are full of jewels and look really beautiful. Unlike the clothes that are worn by lower class people, which are plain and simple clothes. ...read more.

Conclusion

(upper class people think they are more important). A low angle shot is used for Jack to make him look of higher status. Medium long shots are used in the upper class to show that upper class people look like 'good' people but actually they have many secrets. Panning is used when Jack walks into the upper class area; this shows that Jack is confused. Three shot is used for Jack, Rose and Molly to show that they don't really fit in with upper class people. Cameron shows class divisions in this extract of "Titanic" in many different ways for example Behaviour, Camera and Their way of life but I think Cameron shows class divisions mainly by their social rules and behaviour. Cameron shows that upper class people thought lower class people to be of no significance. Although both upper and lower class misjudged each other, lower class people didn't have a problem with upper class people. Whereas upper class people did. ?? ?? ?? ??
