The Village (2004)

Question: Can somebody tell me why the elders don't allow people to leave the village at the start of the film?

Chosen answer: They left modern civilization to escape violence. They have been living a lie and do not want their children to know about the real world, fearing they will want go there and might never return. That is why they concocted the story about the monsters in the wood to frighten them from leaving the village.
