    the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, the characters Samwise Gamgee and Frodo Baggins share a very intimate friendship. One could even say they were brothers. Sam displays signs of deep concern for Frodo throughout the film. This is shown in the way he looks at Frodo, taking risks to protect him, and so forth. Frodo does the same for Sam, but in a less risky sense. He cares for him deeply, but doesn’t seem to take the same life threatening risks Sam does in order to do what is right for the relationship.

With the help of Sam, Frodo is able to make it to Mount Doom, barely hanging on to himself at this point. When Sam offers to help carry the Ring, Frodo almost looses control of himself. “It’s too late now, Sam dear. You can’t help me…

Frodo, on the other hand, neither leads nor…

    Sauron’s Ring. Bilbo is reluctant to give the Ring to Gandalf, and in the end, Frodo ultimately battles with his will to pitch the Ring into the fires of Mount Doom in Mordor.
