The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
“One ring to rule them all. One ring to find them. One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.” — J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings — In the first part of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, a shy young hobbit named Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood – “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Everything is Illuminated”) inherits a simple gold ring. He knows the ring has power, but not that he alone holds the secret to the survival — or enslavement — of the entire world. Now Frodo, accompanied by a wizard, an elf, a dwarf, two men and three loyal hobbit friends, must become the greatest hero the world has ever known to save the land and the people he loves. Also starring Academy Award-nominee Viggo Mortensen (“A History of Violence,” “Eastern Promises”), Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe- winner Ian McKellan (“X-Men,” TV’s “Rasputin”), Orlando Bloom (“Troy,” “The Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy), Liv Tyler (“The Strangers” “The Incredible Hulk”) and Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Cate Blanchett (“Elizabeth,” “The Aviator”). Winner of four Academy Awards including Best Cinematography, Best Original Score, Best Visual Effects and Best Makeup.
