Have any of you all watched this movie? It is a favorite of mine, so the other night I got Jenny to watch it with me. It was funny, she wanted to know what it was about, but those of you who have seen it know that it is pretty much impossible to describe it without giving away the story! So she thought we were sitting down to a "chick flick" (since that is the kind of movie we often watch together). What a surprise! As with anytime I have watched this thought provoking movie, it always starts a serious conversation. What do you think they should have done, how would you have handled this...........There are some good analogies here too, we can't hide from sin, it will always find us, because it is within us.
All that being said, I must admit my favorite part of the movie is the love story within it! I think the "porch scene" is one of my all time favorite movie scenes.........I love the way the two characters who love one another show their love by their actions, caring for one another, sacrificing, etc, so different than your typical movie love story. Other nice things about "The Village"? No language, and beautiful music. Ok, so I admit, it is scary..........But, maybe I have convinced someone to watch it!
