Movie Stuff Mondays - Lothlorien

I'm so sorry that this is late!

The Companions seek shelter in the hidden Elvish realm of Lothlorien. Its ruler, Galadriel, gives them warnings and gifts, sending them on their way in boats.

Lothlorien is a place of healing with no evil in it, unless a man brings evil there with him.

What the Big Folk Were Saying
"What's he gonna do with an Avon bottle?" - A man as Frodo is given the phial of Galadriel

What the Wizards Know
Monaghan was allergic to his Elven cloak.

What the Elvish Eyes and Ears Have Noticed

In the book, Boromir received a golden belt from Galadriel. The gift-giving scene is in the extended edition, but Boromir does not receive any gift. (Maybe Galadriel could foretell he was going to die soon and wouldn't need it.)

Boromir says, "My father is a noble man." Interestingly, his father Denethor is played by John Noble.

Cate Blanchett (Galadriel, who is noted for being tall) stands about 5' 8" while Gimli (who is noted for being short) is played by an actor who stands over six feet tall. Think about that one while Galadriel looks down upon Gimli!

Lady Galadriel's gift to Gimli is impressive, considering she refused the same request from Feanor, one of the greatest Elves in Middle-Earth history and creator of the palantiri
