Sorry, Kate Winslet, but you are wrong. Or at least missing the point. As Jezebel’s own Madeleine Davies, leading Titanic scholar, insists: “OMFG, YOU IDIOTS: The issue wasn’t that Jack and Rose didn’t fit on the door, it was that Jack’s weight made the door sink!” If Jack had gotten on that door, it would’ve been sufficiently swamped with frigid North Atlantic seawater that they both froze to death. The end.

The door was a metaphor for their relationship, guys! Rose was always going to be able to go places that Jack couldn’t follow. They were trapped in two different worlds! Also doors have handles and Rose couldn’t have handled the judgment of society had she chosen him. Also doors are made of wood and while the sex was great in bone town, it wasn’t going to great in the real world. Plus as “door”thy said There’s no place like home. jack was made of rubies and not wearing slippers so metaphorically he represented her dead father and also the tension in Europe leading up to World War 1. Take a FILM class dummies.
