Anyone else notice that she does not actually appear to be DRAWING the bow. Look at her hand, the fingers are pointed downwards the way you would be holding the back of an arrow, not actually placed on the bowstring and drawing it back the way a real archer would be...

Yeah, she's holding onto some sort of adaptor, for want of a better word. It allows you to draw the arrow without hurting your fingers pulling back on the string. That can really hurt, eventually.

Apparently, it also helps stop twisting of the string, which causes string derailment and bow damage, and people injury...

Yes she was in the film. It is all explained at the council of Elrond.

Erestor: The ring has no power over Tom Bombadil and within his bounds nothing seems to dismay him. Could he not take the ring and keep it there, forever harmless.

Elrond: Erm... Gandalf?

Gandalf: Hmm...

Glorfindel: What are you dithering about Elrond. The plan of Erestor is much better than yours.

Elrond: Glorfindel, you are banished from the last homely house. Sail back to the west at once.  Arwen will take your place in the film. Erestor, I am replacing you by that girl with the compound bow.

I wouldn't let her into any council, she's got two Palantir blatantly afixed to her chest, you can't know who is listening.
