I have watched quite a few movies with Elijah Wood since I first had the chance to follow his astonishing performance as Frodo Baggins. And though my imagination of his physical appearance has changed since the LOTR-movies (especially after I seriously began to write stories about him as the very "book-verse", mature and decidedly elder Frodo), these scenes in ROTK always seemed to be the very essence of Frodo for me... a vulnerable being, stripped of all illusions, all dreams and hopes and dissolving in the raw power and pain of fulfilling an impossible quest by sacrificing his very self.

This was a masterpiece of acting and a deep, instinctive "grip" on one of my most beloved characters in literature. Thank you so much for these stunning screencaps! And for the poem, of course - jan-u-wine is a mistress of poetry.

[Sorry, Mona, for the confusion; I read the comment of Frolijah fan, just below yours as if it were yours. All fixed.]

I was all that. Whatever were the missteps in the way they wrote and directed Frodo, EW's instincts seemed always to compensate. His work in these scenes was just sensational. And what in his personal life could he have drawn on to play these scenes? Everyone has some grief and sadness, but his work was so powerful playing these extreme emotions, I can only think he was channelling Frodo!
