#141 Tauriel

... Look: Evangeline Lilly’s Tauriel in ‘The Desolation of Smaug

In Peter Jackson’s adaption of J. R. R. Tolkiens The Hobbit, he adds in a female elf character that was not present in the book. This beautiful elf is Tauriel, she finds herself in love with a dwarf towards the end of the second movie and spends time fighting for him. This goes against what the elves believe in Rivendell. So, in a way it is kind of a Romeo and Juliet type love story. When she hears that the dwarves have left to go complete the mission that they are assigned, she bravely goes after them. In doing so she helps them complete what they had to do. I don’t want to spoil the ending for those who have not seen The Hobbit trilogy yet. Even though the series strays from the book, they are good movies to watch.
