Andrew Wyeth's influence on M. Night Shyamalan's 'The Village'





"Andrew (Wyeth) was the main inspiration for the look of the movie," explains Shyamalan. "In fact, for a long time I was talking to Disney about whether we could get the rights to one of his pictures for the poster." "The grays, and the minimalism, and the light - that's all from Andrew," he reports. "And there's not a lot on the walls... . He painted a lot of scenes from one doorway [looking] into another doorway, an old-fashioned bed and all. Creepy. Creepy beautiful." ("A setting right out of Andrew Wyeth" By Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer Movie Critic).
