MY FAVOURITE FILM
I like to go to the cinema. When I have time I always go to see some new films. There is a cinema not far from my house and I often go there with my friends. I prefer feature films and amusing comedies. I also like true-to-life films describing the life of ordinary people, their feelings and problems. As a rule, such films leave a deep impression on me. My favourite film, which I have seen lately, is «Titanic». It is an American film that was produced and directed by a famous director James Cameron. This film tells us about the real tragedy of the British passenger liner «Titanic». It was supposed to be unsinkable but it struck in an iceberg and sank off on its first voyage in 1912. There were many victims — 1513 lives were lost. While watching the film I was mostly impressed by special effects. A young American actor Leonardo DiCaprio and an English actress Kate Winslet played the leading parts. This film achieved a world-wide fame. It won 11 Oscars in 1998, the highest annual motion picture awards of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts of the USA for the best picture, best director, best cinematography, best screenplay, best scenery, best costumes, best sound and best music. This film was very popular with cinema-goers and I like it a lot.
