Based on the short story by Richard Matheson, The Box stars Cameron Diaz and James Marsden as Norma and Arthur Lewis, a suburban couple with a young child. One day they receive a simple wooden box as a gift, which bears fatal and irrevocable consequences.
A mysterious stranger (Frank Langella) delivers a 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 crosshairs of a startling moral dilemma and must face the true nature of their humanity.

Director Richard Kelly is certainly a phenomenon. The Box is perhaps not as creative as Donnie Darko, but it's still different. The first half-hour builds up tension, followed by turns, and seemingly insignificant clues. The final solution does not seem forced and leaves room for thought.

The Box is a smart thriller, with a fresh story that is different to any other thriller! Cameron Diaz is a great actress, and she proves it in this film! Perfect on blu ray!
