Watched The Village (2004) by an author from letterboxd.com
When a willful young man tries to venture beyond his sequestered Pennsylvania hamlet, his actions set off a chain of chilling incidents that will alter the community forever.

I always liked this film. I never really got why it was scorned. There are also some excellent moments of film making here, which could seem strangely earnest, given the genre, but that shouldn’t diminish them.

The overall plot you could dismiss as being “a bit daft” but it doesn’t even trouble my sense of disbelief. It’s a great tale too.

★★★★
