The finding of the Arkenstone Can't Post

Continuing in a series of observations about small scenes in AUJ that I unexpectedly loved, I have to discuss the finding of the Arkenstone in Erebor.

Personally, I found it rather surprising- I suppose I thought, while reading the book, that it would be a grander affair. Instead, in the film, we saw it from the perspective of that lone, dwarf miner - his face sweaty and dirtied from the difficulty and griminess of his work - and from his tired eyes slowly opening from beneath his helmet, we, the audience, immediately get a sense of how remarkable this gem is.

The attention to detail on the miner alone was very impressive to me, not to mention the giant caverns surrounding him. It was definitely one of those PJ-certified 'magic moments' that I'm glad we got to see on film. Smile

'I do not know what is happening. The reason of my waking mind tells me that great evil has befallen and we stand at the end of days. But my heart says nay; and all my limbs are light, and a hope and joy are come to me that no reason can deny. Eowyn, Eowyn, White Lady of Rohan, in this hour I do not believe that any darkness will endure!' And he stooped and kissed her brow.
