A Leonardo DiCaprio box set. 'Titanic' is James Cameron's epic account of the world's most famous maritime disaster, the most commercially successful film ever made, and swept the board at the 1997 Oscar ceremony. The Titanic, the most prestigious liner ever to sail the seas, sets off on its maiden voyage in April, 1912. Amongst the passengers are Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) and her fiancé Cal Hockley (Billy Zane), the heir of a Pittsburgh steel magnate. Rose is less than thrilled at the prospect of spending the rest of her life with Hockley, and contemplates throwing herself off the stern of the ship, only to be persuaded otherwise by fellow passenger, barrowboy Jack Dawson (DiCaprio). Despite coming from opposite ends of the social scale, the couple soon fall in love, but will their relationship be cut tragically short when the boat crashes into an iceberg? In 'The Beach', upon arriving in Bangkok, American backpacker Richard (DiCaprio) is given a map by Daffy (Robert Carlyle), a drug-addicted Scot, which shows him the route to an idyllic island. Richard teams up with French couple Francoise (Virginie Ledoyen) and Etienne (Guillaume Canet) to make his way to the island, braving various dangers en route. The trio eventually reach their goal and discover a community of western travellers living on a paradise-like stretch of beach. Richard soon makes himself at home, embarking on a relationship with Francoise, but his new-found Eden proves to have hidden dangers when community leader Sal (Tilda Swinton) also becomes enamoured of him. Whilst 'Romeo and Juliet' sees Shakespeare's play transferred to the futuristic urban backdrop of Verona Beach, California. The Montague and Capulet families are embroiled in a long-running feud. When Romeo (DiCaprio), a Montague, attends a Capulet ball in disguise, he falls in love with the beautiful Juliet (Claire Danes). Although already engaged to Dave Paris, whom she does not love, Juliet vows to marry Romeo. They ask the kindly Father Laurence to perform the ceremony in secret, but bloodshed and tragedy threaten the couple's future together.
