Storyline

M Night Shyamalan's The Villiage revolves around a desolate town in Pennsylvania. The residents of this town live simply and without the means of a modern world - no tv, modern medications. They live by strict rules - They are not to leave the village or the monsters beyond their boundaries will surely attack them. Lucius and Ivy have an attraction - a strong one. But when Noah - a man with an intellectual disability and whom also has feelings for Ivy, finds out that the two are In love, Noah attacks Lucius. He will die if brave Ivy (who is blind) does not breach the borders and find help to save Lucius. Written by Erin Foster

Trivia

Local Chadds Ford artist Andrew Wyeth's works were used as inspiration for the look of the film. In fact the house shared by Joaquin Phoenix and Sigourney Weaver was a copy of the one that appears in a Wyeth watercolor painting titled "Open Shed". See more »

Goofs

The film misunderstands how "no fly zones" work in the United States.

While there are areas which have heavily restricted flight patterns, there are almost no areas which have complete bans on overflight. These areas are almost exclusively the ones used or occupied by the President of the United States or which have national security interests.And even those areas will allow military and emergency overflights if they are required by need.

It would be virtually impossible to purchase the right for not only civilian aircraft, but also military ones to not overfly a particular region. Even if it were possible to do so, aircraft would still have to be allowed to fly NEAR such locations as not doing doing could itself create navigational hazards which could endanger them.

And finally, while restricted overflight areas DO exist, they are often subject to accidental and intentional overflights by civilian pilots. Unless there is a squadron or wing of aircraft prepared to challenge the aircraft or the facility has anti-aircraft defenses, there is no way that overflights could be prevented or even seriously discouraged.

Very unfortunately advertised completely incorrectly
11 January 2005 | by (Thessaloniki, Greece) – See all my reviews

The film The Village, was quite unfortunately Mal advertised, this being in Greece of course. Instead of showing the ingenuity of the plot and the sort utopia created, it depicts a cheap horror story. This accomplished two very inopportune things. Firstly it attracted quite a unimaginative unintelligent crowd of people, who were, of course, displeased by the outcome of the story. Secondly it didn't allow the more imaginative more interpretive crowd to enjoy the quite complacent plot and Walden Two like utopia ultimately falling apart the sole reason people never left the place was due to their fear of some unknown creature.It was well done, had a good group of productive actors and a very suspenseful plot and deserves better reviews than it is given.
