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.
