Pssst. Hey. Over here.

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 (CAMERON DIAZ) is a teacher at a private high

school and her husband, Arthur (JAMES MARSDEN), 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 (FRANK LANGELLA, as Arlington


Steward) and presents them with a life-altering proposition:
the box.



With only 24 hours to make their choice, Norma and Arthur face an impossible


moral dilemma.  They soon discover that
the ramifications of this decision

are beyond their control and extend far beyond their own fortune and fate.




The Box‘ is based upon the classic short story ‘Button, Button’ by Richard

Matheson.  It was written for
the screen and directed by Richard Kelly,

whose 2001 sci-fi mystery thriller ‘Donnie Darko’, a cult classic, earned a


Grand Jury Prize nomination at
the Sundance Film Festival.  ‘Donnie Darko’

went on to screen at film festivals around
the world and brought Kelly

Independent Spirit Award nominations for Best Director and Best Screenplay.
