I'm curious to hear why you would do it way with the Houses of the Healing?


It's quite a nice scene on its own but it feels kinda outta the blue, like if there were some missing connective moments to really make it land. I find it awkward that he holds her hand when they're total strangers as far as the audience knows. It's not bad at all but as it is, it feels underwritten so I think the movie is better without the distraction.

There were a few others like that, that I like the scene itself well enough but didn't feel it integrated well with the rest of the movie.

That makes sense, particularly from a cinematic point of view. For myself, as a book fan, I was happy to have even that much of a nod to Éowyn and Faramir's romance, which I always have found very moving, even if it didn't strictly make much sense in the context of the films only.

The Houses of Healing sequence is pretty dreamlike over a non-specific period of time and ends with Faramir in the room while Éowyn is on the mend, so I get the feeling their later scene before the Black Gate isn't the first time they've ever spoken.

I could just be reading it through my book knowledge though. But it all happens pretty fast in the book too! ;)

And EE scenes are generally designed to be for people with pre-existing knowledge from the books.
