Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
elders. They are the elders of the town dresssed up in a costume of monsters to keep people from leaving the town through the woods. Noah is also dressed as a monster at the end of the film, but it is the elders who created them. Personally I thought that they looked like gigantic porcupines.
If you liked this quiz keep an eye out for part two!
Noah. This was the best scene in the entire movie, in my opinion. The camera angles and acting left me mesmerized. You don't really realize what happened until it is too late, and then you are left in shock. Shyamalan's use of no dialogue or music was fantastic!
Noah is played by Adrian Brody, who was the youngest man to ever win the best actor Oscar for his role in "The Pianist".
blind . Ivy had an illness, as a child, that claimed her eyesight. She states she can 'see' colors for some people, including her father and Lucius. She always teases Lucius that she will not tell him his color.
Harm coming to Ivy. Lucius has asked the elders twice to be able to go into towns to get new medicines, and he also holds the record for the boyhood challenge of standing on the stump. When sitting on the porch with Ivy, he specifically says that he feels fear when he thinks about harm coming to her. I found it a very romantic scene between Lucius and Ivy on the porch, when he really declares his love for her. In my opinion Joaquin and Bryce play their parts wonderfully throughout the entire movie.
Mr. Walker. He believes that Mr. Walker loves his mother because he will not touch her, which is the same reason Ivy gives for believing that Lucius loves her. Mr. Walker is played by William Hurt, who has starred in numerous movies, including "Lost In Space", "The Doctor", and "Tuck Everlasting".
|Ivy tells Lucius the reason that he denies her sister is because he loves her. Why does Ivy think that?||"The Village" Basics 1
he no longer touches her. Ivy tells him that "we no longer do the things that we really want to do, for fear that other people will know that we want to do them". She tells him that when she was younger he would often take her arm as she walked, but as she got older he stopped touching her. She claims to have even tripped, on purpose, in front of him and he still didn't reach out to her.
No. Lucius was indeed in love with another, and poor Kitty cried all night about Lucius turning her down. Kitty Walker is portrayed by Judy Greer, who is also in "Jawbreaker".
|Near the beginning of "The Village", Kitty Walker professes to her father that she is in love. Who is the object of her affections?||"The Village" Basics 1
Lucius. Kitty is seeking her father's approval for a relationship with Lucius. Her father insists that she talk to Lucius before telling anyone else about her love! I found the scene when Kitty tells Lucius hilarious - Jaoquin's deadpan facial expressions had me rolling on the floor. Although he says nothing in this scene the look on his face, as Kitty rambles about her love for him, is priceless.
Bryce Dallas Howard. Ivy Walker plays a critical role in this movie - after Lucuis is attacked she goes into the towns to get medicine, to heal his wounds. Bryce Dallas Howard, the daughter of director/actor Ron Howard debuts in film with the role of Ivy. Bryce is a great young actress and I hope to see more out of her in the future.
Lucius Hunt. Joaquin plays Lucius, a very mild mannered, soft spoken young man. Joaquin has been in movies such as "Signs", "Gladiator", and "8MM".
|Who suffers an untimely demise in the movie?||The Village
Noah. After Lucius is stabbed, it seems like he isn't going to make it. However, he has a strong will to live because of his love for Ivy, and pulls through in the end. Noah, however, falls into a ditch and dies. It is poetic justice for the attempted murder of Lucius.
all of these (The monsters are controlled by the elders., Noah is dressed up as one of the monsters., The film is set in modern-day.). M. Night Shyamalan is famous, or rather, imfamous, for his plot twists, most notably in "The Sixth Sense". One of the elders, Edward Walker, Ivy's father, was a history professor who created the village as a utopia to preserve innocence because many of their loved ones have been savagely killed. They fabricated the monsters to keep the villagers within the borders, so they can never go into the real world and lose their innocence. Noah finds one of costumes and dresses up in it, scaring Ivy. However, the village is a historical experiment gone awry. In an attempt to keep the villagers from harm's way, no one is allowed into the woods, and many people die because they do not have modern medicines. The village is still corrupt from within because Noah attempts to murder Lucius. As the adage goes, you can't protect people from themselves.
Lucius. After Lucius and Ivy announce their engagement, a jealous Noah stabs Lucius. This is an interesting scene in the movie to watch. First, Noah is crying about the news and Lucius is comforting him. Then Lucius stops talking and the camera pans down and shows that Noah has just stabbed him. After Lucius collapses, Noah takes the knife out and puts it on the table. Then he thinks better of it, retrieves the knife, walks away but then returns to stab Lucius again.
|What is the only thing that Lucius is afraid of?||The Village
Fear for Ivy's safety. Lucius holds the record for standing on a stump at the village's border the longest, so he is not afraid of the woods. He admits that he is fearful of Ivy's safety when he confesses his love for her.
Kitty. At first, Kitty is infatuated with Lucius, but he is in love with her sister, Ivy. There is a funny scene in the movie where Kitty proclaims her love for Lucius, but he doesn't reciprocate and just stares at her strangely. The next scene shows Kitty crying on her bed because Lucius has rejected her. However, Kitty soon recovers and marries a guy who likes his clothes wrinkle-free. The wedding scene in this movie reminds me of the one in "Fiddler on the Roof". The joyous festivities are spoiled in both movies. In "Fiddler on the Roof", the wedding reception is ruined by a pogrom and in this film, by a monster attack.
|One of the most haunting lines from the movie is "let not the bad color be seen, it attracts them", said by Ivy after a flower of that color is found. What is the bad color?||The Village
red. The color red supposedly attracts the monsters from the woods and is taboo in the village. When the monsters came into the village, they painted red marks on all the doors as warning. The color red is significant in many of M. Night Shyamalan's movies, especially in "The Sixth Sense". The color yellow is a pacifying color in the movie. Ivy wears a yellow cloak for safety when she goes into the woods.
|Who is "main" love triangle between in the movie?||The Village
Ivy, Lucius, and Noah. Ivy, Lucius and Kitty, as well as Alice, Edward and Tabitha are also love triangles in the movie, but they are not the primary one. Lucius Hunt (Joaquin Phoenix) is strong and taciturn, while Noah Percy (Adrien Brody) is mentally impaired, but both men vie for Ivy's affections.
don't know. The movie ends with Ivy approaching Lucius' bed and telling him that she is back. She indeed returned with the medicine, but we are not specifically told whether or not he survives. I read a post on www.imdb.com and they claim that during the credits there is a picture of Lucius doing farm work, but the movie never specifically states whether he lives or dies.
professor. Again during the scene with the voiceover from the grief counseling meeting, Edward Walker says that he is an American History Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, and he has an idea he would like to discuss. This is the point in the movie that we discover where the village came from.
funeral. The first scene is a father crying over his son's grave. There is a banquet following the funeral, and the meeting and wedding all happen later in the movie.
Noah. The elders explanation was that a coyote was responsible for the attacks, because they knew that none of them had done it as a "creature". Later when it is discovered that Noah is no longer in the quiet room, we see the floor boards are all torn up and a bloody rag and feathers. His father states that he has found the spare costume and you hear his mother mutter "The animals".
robbed and murdered. Alice Hunt tells her son the story about his father, saying that he left for the market only to be found days later naked, and floating in the filthy river. Later in the movie there is a voiceover when Alice is telling the grief counseling group about her husband being murdered and found in the East River.
a present day road. That is the twist in this movie. The people in the village are living in the late 1800s, the headstone at the funeral reads 1897. When Ivy climbs the fence the audience realizes that the village is really contained in the Walker Preserve and the elders, who met in grief counseling, developed this idea to leave the real world behind. Thanks to the money Edward Walker inherited when his father was murdered, they invented this new life for them and their families.
Yes. Kitty ends up marrying Christop Crane, he is the one that hates to get his shirt wrinkled. Ivy says that he even refuses to sit back in his chair in fear of wrinkling his shirt.
red. Red is symbolic in "The Sixth Sense" also by Shyamalan. I don't really get why it is so important in this movie, if anyone got the reason for it, please message me and let me know! Thanks.
to get medicines to save Lucius. Ivy's father wanted to go in her place, but Mrs. Walker kept reminding him that he made an oath. So instead he sent his daughter, with two escorts, to go to through the forest into the towns. He also explained to her the story of the 'creatures' so she has nothing to fear in the forest.
|"The world moves for love" is said by Edward Walker while he is outside having a discussion with the other elders. What does he say next?||Face Your Fears in "The Village"
"It kneels before it in awe.". This is said by Edward Walker after he has confronted the elders, telling of his decision to send Ivy to the towns. While the other quotes are lines from the movie, they are not said at this part.
He's reading a newspaper. Night is known to have cameos in his movies. We see his cameo in The Village when Kevin comes in to take medicine back to Ivy. Night is reading a newspaper; the most we see of him is the back and side of his head, and the reflection of his face in the glass.
Kevin. Ivy ventures into woods, intending to travel to the towns to find medicines for Lucius. When she arrives, a young man pulls up in a vehicle and, while hesitant at first, agrees to find the medicine she needs. She asks his name, and he says his name is Kevin.
5. After Noah stabs Lucius, he is taken to the Quiet Room. Ivy goes to visit Noah and startles him by slapping him several times--five, to be exact. She is then taken away and the door to the Quiet Room is locked.
|One night, Lucius pays a visit to the person who is currently at the tower, keeping an eye out for the creatures. He is a young man with the last name of Coin. What is his first name?||Face Your Fears in "The Village"
Finton. Lucius visits Finton Coin this particular night to keep him company. Finton calls Lucius a good friend.
