There's so much of that performance that you can only see in screen caps -- since you guys have been doing this, I am even more appreciative of how wonderful Elijah was as Frodo, and how indebted I am to him for giving us this treasure.

Achila, I love this whole scene to distraction, actually. Not just for EW in it. From when I first saw it (and I didn't "fall" for Frodo until RotK), I thought, "What a FABULOUSLY conceived, shot and acted scene." I still think it is one of the most perfectly done sequences in film. The caps just help deepen and extend the pleasure I take in it.

Something about the firelight on his skin....

Gee, we've got a fire place.... In fact, we've got two. Do you think if I asked very nicely he might come over, for a mulled wine, perhaps....?

To me, that second set of caps is painful.. His frantic demand that Gandalf "MUST take it." and then the sad realization that he won't and then the determination to do what he must.
I'm afraid if I was there my response would be to snatch the thing out of his hand.. put it down Gandalf's shirt and say "Here. It's YOUR problem! Come on, Frodo.. you have better things to do.":-)

Now, now, Taerie. I know how you hate angst. If you were in charge of the course epic tales, they would never happen! *grin*

You got THAT right! I would ruin the book, the movie, AND be completely unrepentant too!
