The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers (2002)

The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers (2002)

The siblings: Boromir (Sean Bean) and Faramir (David Wenham)

What puts them at odds? Denethor (John Noble) loved Boromir more. Boromir went off to help the Fellowship and ended up as an Uruk-hai arrow pincushion. Denethor was irate.

Poor old Faramir, a proud warrior who just wants to prove himself and win acceptance from his dad. Sadly, pop has been driven nuts (as we learn in Return Of The King and the extended Two Towers) and even before that, preferred his older brother Boromir. So you can almost sympathise with Faramir when he spots a chance to take The One Ring to Gondor. Despite his desire to please the old man and offer some comfort after his brother’s death, however, he wises up and lets Frodo (Elijah Wood) and Sam (Sean Astin) go on their way. Oh, and if his dad’s favouritism for Boromir being the better son wasn’t bad enough, Denethor is also obsessed with someone called Peter in another univ… Hang on, no, that’s Fringe.

Which sibling is your favourite?
