The Box (2009)

The time is 1976, the place is Richmond, Virginia. Arthur and Norma Lewis receive a box on their doorstep one early winter morning with no idea what it is or who it's from. Arlington Steward, the man who left it shows up unexpectedly at their house and says he has an offer for to make them; if they push the red button on the box that two things will happen: they will receive one million dollars in cash but someone, somewhere whom they don't know will die. The general premise of the story is good, but as the film goes on it gets more and more confusing and complex when all these other factors come into play, so you can't entirely understand what is going on. Starring Cameron Diaz, James Marsden, Frank Langella 6/10
