The Village Questions

Please post one discussion question regarding The Village that we have not yet addressed in class (or perhaps you brought it up, but it didn't get the full attention it deserved). Please read others' questions first to avoid repeating a question that has already been posed.

Why would the "elders" want to continue their way of life if the main purpose of a sin free society has already been broken through the attempted murder of Lucius?

Did the boy Ryan from the other side of the forest know that Ivy Walker was related to his boss? Is that why he retrieved the medicine?

Would Ivy have still killed Noah if she would have known it was him? Why did Noah chase Ivy if he loved her?

Can Ivy see several different colors, or is red the only color she sees?

When Ivy was in the forest, who did she think the monster was?

How did Noah keep the society alive and still going? Is it because it gives people proof that the creatures will hurt or kill those that go into the forest or is it because he made Ivy think there really are creatures in the forest?

What is going to happen to the village after the elders die? Would they pass on the tradition of the village to some of their children and they would become the new elders? How would they keep the village's purpose alive without letting out its secret?

Why were the elders so unsure about Ivy going into the woods and discovering how life on the other side was really lived? With the attempted murder of Lucious she already came to find that no matter how strict the society is, evil can still find its way in.

How were the elders able to get into the creature costumes without anyone in the village noticing either them or that they were gone?

Was the big hole in the woods (were Noah fell into) just a coincidence or was it dug up by someone in the village earlier intended to catch a “monster”?

What does the "quiet room" represent? The quiet room is the room that Noah was locked inside. Does the room represent society and how questions were more supressed then answered?

Would you have liked this movie if you saw it in the theaters? If you did see the movie before, do you like it better because you were alalizing it?

When Noah dressed up like the monster in the woods, when he was chasing Ivy was his intensions to be playful with her, or was he trying to harm her because he was mad at her?

How could Noah bust through the floor of the "quietroom", find a monster suit, go through a window and run all the way into the woods without anyone noticing a giant monster in a red cloak running away from one of the houses?

Why do they keep a box full of secrets? What does it represent? Does it represent something different for the townspeople and the "elders"?

As Lucis states Noah represents innocence, because Noah goes into the woods alone. And if the Elders at the end say that Noah’s death preserve the village’s ideals. Does innocence have to die to save everything?

How did nobody see Noah running through the town to the forrest in a big red monster suit how can nobody see that when the towns brightest color is dark green?
