Gandalf may technically be older than Galadriel but I'd wager her experience in the eastern continent outweighs the Grey Pilgrim's. Not trying to be an apologist, just playing devil's advocate in approaching this from a character perspective. Of course the argument to that is that Mithrandir has spent more time amongst the free peoples than Galadriel and would have a more comprehensive understanding of the ways of the world. Ultimately they will be coming from two distinct worldviews as elf and maia and that certainly can't be overlooked. Each character has a history and perspective they are bringing into the situation and whether or not the movie portrayed that accurately to Tolkien is beyond my ability to call, however I felt, as an audience member, that they were true to their roles in the narrative.

The movie being a pile of PJ dung, Cate did look much more 'Galadriel' like in the White Council scenes. Didn't pick up the romance vibe too much, but Galadriel would be totally effable. [] Being that she can read minds, I bet she picks that up a lot. []
