Arwen and Eowyn

I agree with Edmund C's comments about the mis-casting of Arwen and Eowyn.  Live Tyler's too young, and Miranda Otto's too old (if you pay attention to J.R.R.T's descriptions in the text)!  I think the beautiful French actress Sophie Marceau would have made a far more regal, mature, and convincing (not too mention more attractive) Arwen, while talented young Leelee Sobieski would have been ideal as the strong-willed, rebellious, yet impressionable "shield maiden" Eowyn. What does anyone else think?
