The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
178 minutes, Rated PG-13; directed by Peter Jackson
The future of civilization rests in the fate of the One Ring, which has been lost for centuries. Powerful forces are unrelenting in their search for it. But fate has placed it in the hands of a young Hobbit named Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), who inherits the Ring and steps into legend. A daunting task lies ahead for Frodo when he becomes the Ringbearer: he must destroy the One Ring in the fires of Mount Doom where it was forged. This is the first film in a series of three, based on the Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien.
