It's a pretty compelling argument.

When the ships hits the iceberg and begins to sink, she needs Jack in order to find the strength to survive (even though, realistically, as a female first class passenger she had much better chances than many others on board). This culminates in the tragic and highly contested door scene in which Jack dies, and the idea is he couldn't get out of the water and survive on the door with her... because he wasn't real. Rose says, "I'll never let go," and lets him drift into the abyss because she doesn't need him anymore, but promises to keep the lessons he taught her with her forever.

"Lying still, Gordon felt a sad poignancy — something like homesickness. The jeep, the symbolic, faithful letter carrier, the flag patch ... they recalled comfort, innocence, cooperation, an easy life that allowed millions of men and women to relax, to smile or argue as they chose, to be tolerant with one another — and to hope to be better people with the passage of time." — The Postman

The Postman is the dramatically moving saga of a man who rekindled the spirit of America through the power of a dream. This best-selling and award-winning novel (NOMINEE: 1986 Nebula and Hugo Awards; WINNER: Locus and John W. Campbell Memorial Awards for best novel; "Best" from the American Library Association) is widely considered the most universally "accessible" Brin novel, for those who don't normally read SF.

Black Panther Is Certified Fresh

The biggest real-deal "evidence" for this theory, however, is that the bearded dude from the excavation crew says that there was never any record of Jack on the Titanic's passenger list. Of course, fans of the film would say, "Well, duh, he won the tickets in a card game literally minutes before the ship sailed, so of course there's no record." The other big hurdle to this theory is that you see him talking to a lot of other people on the boat, and not just Rose, so it's not a Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense type of thing — and he also influences the lives of many of these other people. But since we're hearing the story entirely from Rose's perspective, it's possible she's just an unreliable narrator. We never really meet these characters; we only hear about them through's Rose's narrative, so any number of them could be real or imaginary. Also, you know, it is a fictional movie.

However, I choose to reject all of that because Rose and Jack are the best love story of all time and as far as I'm concerned he was real and they reunited in heaven and everyone who died on the ship clapped and they lived happily ever after.
