Story


What if someone gave you a box containing a button that, if pushed, would bring you a million dollars...but simultaneously take the life of someone you don't know? Would you do it? And what would be the consequences?

The year is 1976. Norma Lewis is a teacher at a private high school and her husband, Arthur, is an engineer working at NASA. They are, by all accounts, an average couple living a normal life in the suburbs with their young son...until a mysterious man with a horribly disfigured face appears on their doorstep and presents Norma with a life-altering proposition: the box.

With only 24 hours to make their choice, Norma and Arthur face an impossible moral dilemma. What they don't realize is that no matter what they decide, terrifying consequences will have already been set in motion. They soon discover that the ramifications of this decision are beyond their control and extend far beyond their own fortune and fate.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Instead of sweeping you along, The Box just sits there like something unclaimed at lost and found..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..The farther The Box goes, the more ludicrous the movie becomes..”
by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald]
“..manages to simultaneously tell us too much and keep us confused..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
