“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 conclusion of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, as armies mass for a final battle that will decide the fate of the world–and powerful, ancient forces of Light and Dark compete to determine the outcome–one member of the Fellowship of the Ring is revealed as the noble heir to the throne of the Kings of Men. Yet, the sole hope for triumph over evil lies with a brave hobbit, Frodo, who, accompanied only by his loyal friend Sam and the hideous, wretched Gollum, ventures deep into the very dark heart of Mordor on his seemingly impossible quest to destroy the Ring of Power. Winner of 11 Academy Awards® including Best Picture and Best Director! The film ties with Titanic and Ben-Hur for the most Oscars ever won by a single film and took awards in every category for which it was nominated.
