The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of the Ring
Fate Has Chosen Him. A Fellowship Will Protect Him. Evil Will
In a time before history, in a place named Middle-earth, a dark and powerful
lord has brought together the forces of evil to destroy its cultures and enslave
all life caught in his path. Sauron's time has come and he needs only one small
object, a Ring that has been lost for centuries, to snuff out the light of
civilization and cover the world in darkness. Though he has put all of his power
into the search for it, fate has put it in the hands of a young hobbit named
Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), who inherits the Ring and steps into legend.
With the help of a loyal fellowship comprised of hobbits Sam (Sean Astin),
Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd); Gimli the dwarf (John
Rhys-Davies); and humans Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) and Boromir (Sean Bean); and
with the guidance of the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen), and elves Arwen (Liv
Tyler), Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) and Elrond (Hugo Weaving), Frodo must journey
to the Mount of Doom to destroy the Ring. If he doesn't find a way, no one will.
