* WouldHurtAChild: It's not obvious because she's played by Creator/NicoleKidman but Grace is actually a teenager and therefore technically a child. That doesn't prevent the townsfolk abusing her.

''Dogville'' is a minimalist drama directed by Creator/LarsVonTrier and starring, among others, Creator/NicoleKidman, Creator/PaulBettany and Creator/LaurenBacall. It's based on the poem "Jenny die Seeräuberbraut" ("Music/PirateJenny" or "The Black Freighter") from Creator/BertoltBrecht's ''Theatre/TheThreepennyOpera''. It's also inspired, in part, by Friedrich Dürrenmatt's play ''Theatre/TheVisit.'' It is very, ''very'' hard to watch, and '''not for kids''', despite getting a 12+ rating in some countries.

* [[spoiler: KillEmAll]]: Nicole Kidman's character takes the name of this trope literally and indeed sends her goons to kill the entire village, except the dog.

At first it was conceived as trilogy, and the sequel, titled ''Film/{{Manderlay}}'' (based in part on Brecht's opera ''Theatre/TheRiseAndFallOfTheCityOfMahagonny'') takes Grace ([[TheOtherDarrin now played by]] Bryce Dallas Howard) to the DeepSouth and comments on racism, but it was not as well-received as ''Dogville'' was. The third installment, ''Wasington,'' [[DevelopmentHell may never get made]], but let's hope.
