What the press would say:

Oscar-winner Mike Nichols directs the new film adaptation of Peter Stone and Maury Easton's stunning musical about the voyage of the fated cruise ship Titanic. Kenneth Branagh shines as the ship's architect while Rachel Weisz provides several comedic scenes as a middle-class wife. But it is John C.Reilly who steals the show as the husband of Weisz's ambitious character. Stunning and shocking visual effects and set design are even better than Cameron's dramatic version of the sinking of the ship that was considered unsinkable.
