MOVIE: The Village


Just so y'all know, the rest of the posts this month are following the requests in the form.

One person wanted a movie review, and while I'm not a movie reviewer, I can recommend and fangirl over one, so here we are. To that one person: this post is for you!

 Also, if you're reading this and haven't answered the questions on my form do so here to help change my blog for the better.

Let's get into it!

WORDS CANNOT DESCRIBE HOW MUCH I ADORE THIS MOVIE.


~Summary:~

An Amish-style community lives cut off from the outside world by the woods, in which they believe dangerous creatures exist. They have an uneasy truce with the creatures - if they stay out of the woods, they are left unharmed. When one of the young villagers becomes ill, the boy who loves her ignores the elders of the village to make a bid to the next town to fetch medicine.

I love, love, love this film! The characters are so real and the storyline is heartwrenching, plus the main character, Ivy, is blind something that is rare to find in main characters in movies.

I'm going to let these quotes speak for themselves:

~We can move towards hope, that's what's beautiful about this place. We cannot run from heartache.~

Ivy Walker: How is it that you are so brave while the rest of us shake in our boots?
Lucius Hunt: I don't think of what might happen, only what must be done.




~You have kindness in your voice. I did not expect that.~  

Kitty: I'm in love! I want your permission to marry, Papa!
Edward: There's a proper manner in which these things are supposed to happen, such as the boy would normally be standing next to you, in a moment such as this! Where is the BOY in all this, Kitty?!
Kitty: I haven't spoken to him as of yet.
Edward: The young man is unaware of your intentions?!



~The world moves for love. It kneels before it in awe.~
~She's not going to squeeze my shirt like that, is she?-Christop Crane after Ivy hugs her sister~




 

~They're coming.~
(the most terrifying line)

~There are secrets in every corner of this village. Do you not feel it? Do you not see it?~

~ Life is long and love is deep. ~

~You are a strong one, Ivy. You lead when others would only follow. You see light, when there is only darkness. I trust you. I trust you among all others.~




Ivy: When we are married, will you dance with me? I find dancing very agreeable. Why can you not say what is in your head?
Lucius: Why can you not stop saying what is in yours? Why must you lead, when I want to lead? If I want to dance, I will ask you to dance. If I want to speak, I will open my mouth and speak. Everyone is forever plaguing me to speak further. Why? What good is it to tell you that you are in my every thought from the time I wake? What good can come from my saying that I sometimes cannot think clearly or do my work properly? What gain can rise of my telling you the only time I feel fear, as others do, is when I think of you in harm? That is why I am on this porch, Ivy Walker. I fear for your safety before all others. And yes, I will dance with you on our wedding night. 



Have you watched this movie?

  1. Also your not alone, I don't plan to be a critic ever (though do plan to be an actor) and I review movies anyway. (Particularly ones that are based on books.)
    I haven't watched this movie. But it seems interesting.
    I find it neat that the main character in the story is blind, since I don't know of very many blind main characters...hmm...I should probably now write (or plot, in the meantime) a story with a blind main character that would be so fun. :D Since it is a thriller I was wondering how intense the content is in the film? Is it very bloody or is there no graphic elements in it at all?
    Also, do you plan to review more movies in the future? If you are, can I ask you to review Wonder Woman or perhaps a marvel or a DC movie in the future?

    1. That's cool!

      It is, it has some intense scenes and some blood, but it's not graphic.

      I'm not sure, maybe. I watched Wonder Woman (it's not worth a re-watch imo), but I haven't kept up with DC or Marvel recently.

    2. Thank you. :)

      Okay, thank you for telling me. :)

      Is there a reason you think that about Wonder Woman? (I actually liked it (though I like Captain Marvel better), so I was wondering why you didn't like it.)

    3. (Also, not liking the movie can be even more of a reason to review it (if you feel like it) :D)

    4. It just fell flat in a lot of ways. I honestly don't have time to really watch movies so I try to spend my movie time on things I think I'll enjoy.

  6. This is a lovely movie, from the acting, to the plot, to the cinematography. I think Ivy is an example of a strong female character written really well. So cool that you wrote about this film.
