* WholePlotReference: The plot of the movie is quite similar to the ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode [[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS02E15Paradise "Paradise"]]: a remote farming village is [[spoiler:kept forcibly isolated from the modern world by its leaders]], while most of its inhabitants are ignorant of this. [[spoiler:Said isolation also leads to the villagers being denied modern medical care, leading to the death of people who could otherwise be easily cured.]] These deaths serve as catalyst for the protagonists [[spoiler:trying to connect to the outside world.]] In the end they manage to do that, [[spoiler:so the isolation is broken and the leaders' plot is revealed]], but it remains ambiguous whether it was right or wrong for [[spoiler:the leaders to separate their community from the modern world and its technologies.]]

** Played with and maybe subverted with Lucius, Kitty and Ivy (see SiblingTriangle below).



** [[spoiler: "Those We Don't Speak Of" don't actually exist.]]



** And the earlier reveal: [[spoiler: "Those We Don't Speak Of" don't actually exist.]]



* SiblingTriangle: Played with and maybe subverted. Ivy's older sister Kitty is in-love with Lucius, but Lucius is in love with Ivy. When Kitty asks Lucius to marry her, he turns her down and she's visibly hurt by it. By the time Lucius and Ivy got together, Kitty already married someone else.

* BrokenStreak: Instantly moved Shyamalan from the next great director of his time to a laughingstock.

Rumors exist that it was partially inspired by a YoungAdult novel called ''Literature/RunningOutOfTime'' (note: reading the summary on that page will spoil this film.)
