The Village People

Andy, Colin, and Richard discuss M. Night Shyamalan's mystery thriller The Village. Is the film subversive and "paleoconservative," in that it sympathetically depicts Americans escaping the 21st century in favor of an older, more traditional and innocent way of life?  Is a "gated community" a worthy goal for traditionalists, or a delusion and distraction?
