In 2001, filmmaker Peter Jackson launched his epic trilogy of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings with The Fellowship of the Ring.

In this episode, I’m joined by Dawn Pink to discuss that first film. We discuss what made it so great, the changes Jackson made from the original text, and how casting (and a little luck) made it into one of the greatest films of all time.
