The paper describes the story of "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring". The paper begins by defining a myth as a story that offers an explanation to natural events by using gods, goddesses and heroes to tell the story. He then goes on to show that the movie "Fellowship" is mythical because of the existence of the supernatural powers, the theme of good against evil and the discussion of humanity, the world and the sacred in the conflict.

From the Paper:

"The movie "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" by J. R. R. Tolkien is about the adventure Frodo Baggins, a hobbit who was unwittingly given the great responsibility of caring for and keeping the Ring so coveted by great creatures of the Middle Earth. Frodo's journey in trying to expel the Ring of its powerful effect to all creatures will lead him into numerous encounters with the good and evil creatures of the Middle Earth. "The Fellowship of the Ring," the first of the three series of books about the Ring, introduces us to the main characters that we will also encounter in the next two books in the trilogy. "Fellowship" is an introduction to a place in this world called the Middle Earth, its history and its creatures. Many of the characters, events and themes in the story of the movie parallel with the concept of a myth."
