The Box

thebox

The Box is definitely a very strange movie – set in the 80s  perhaps?  It was  not frightening by any means except that the man who delivered the million dollar box was awful and unsightly.  But it’s a tempt of fate and will to resist being greedy?  but having said that who could resist a million dollars right?  is a human being’s life worth that million dollars you are going to pocket? ok more a morality show i think but there was more to it – it had to do with some government body crazy idea of keeping track of ppl?  Yes can watch but a might boring show if you asked me.

Norma and Arthur Lewis, a suburban couple with a young child, receive a simple wooden box as a gift, which bears fatal and irrevocable consequences. A mysterious stranger, delivers the message that the box promises to bestow upon its owner $1 million with the press of a button. But, pressing this button will simultaneously cause the death of another human being somewhere in the world; someone they don’t know. With just 24 hours to have the box in their possession, Norma and Arthur find themselves in the cross-hairs of a startling moral dilemma and must face the true nature of their humanity.
