SYNOPSIS: 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) and presents them with a life-altering proposition: the box.
With only 24 hours to make their choice, Norma and Arthur face a momentous moral dilemma. They soon discover that the ramifications of this decision are beyond their control and extend far beyond their own fortune and fate.
REVIEW: As a fan of a well developed and engaging mystery film, I was looking forward to The Box DVD release. With the many film released at the end of last year, I didnít had a chance to watch the movie in the theaters, so this was my opportunity to finally find out what will happen after pressing the button.
Knowing that the film was directed by Richard Kelly make me a little skeptic about the film. And I was right about that though. Kelly who previous directed the convoluted film Southland Tales managed to basically set the basis for a interesting story, however similar to his previous
work the film falls into a hard to follow nonsense that eventually make this film a total disappointment.
DVD: The Box is
presented in a widescreen format preserving its theatrical
released format. The picture is complemented with a 5.1 Dolby
Digital audio in English, Spanish and Francais. The surprise in
this DVD version is the absents of extras. It only includes a
small featurette called "Richard Mattheson: In His Own
Words" an interview with legend Richard Matthenson.
Spanish and Francais 5.1 Dolby Digital
Subtitles - English Spanish
Richard Mattheson: In His Own Words Ė an intimate interview with the sch-fi legend, Richard Mattheson, about his career, his inspirations , the films that have been made from his books and more
