Trama del film:

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. However, 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. Written by Warner Bros. Pictures

In the early morning of December 16, 1976, teacher Norma Lewis finds a box at the front door of the Virginia home she shares with her husband, Arthur, who opens the box to find a strange button unit, and a letter reading that a "Mr. Stewart" would visit them that evening. That day, both Norma, who has a physical impairment, and Arthur, each receive devastating news in their respective workplaces. In the evening, a creepy man with a deformed face appears at the home of Norma & Arthur, introducing himself as Arlington Stewart. He gives the couple the key to open the button unit, along with an offer: If they press the button, they will receive $1 million. However, a stranger somewhere in the world will have to die. The Lewises are then told that they have 24 hours to make the decision. The reluctant Norma & Arthur do not believe Stewart, so Norma presses the button… changing their lives forever. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    I'm not gonna lie. To say that this movie is confusing is like saying
    the sun is hot but not really. And if you've seen cult director Richard
    Kelly's previous films, "Donnie Darko" and "Southland Tales," you know
    that's gotta mean something. When I went to see this movie, there were
    about 50 people in the theater. Before an hour into the film, about
    half of the audience had already walked out. By the end, there were
    only 15 people left wondering what in the hell did they just see. I for
    one could only comprehend roughly 40% of what I saw on- screen, and
    even then it can only be called interpretation. So why did I give this
    movie a generous seven stars? Because for one, we get some spectacular
    performances (Marsden's great and Langella returns as a familiar creepy
    character), and most importantly two, because it's entirely original
    and Richard Kelly, undoubtedly one of the bravest directors alive, uses
    his creative vision to tell a story that dares to be different. Quite
    frankly, it's the ONLY way – only through Kelly's unique style could
    this story be told the way it's intended.

    In the end, if you're not willing to spend some serious thought into an
    intelligent movie (and even then it may all amount to nothing), stay
    FAR away from this one. But if you want to watch a deep, rich, complex
    and thought-provoking piece on spirituality, existentialism, and the
    predictability of human nature, go see this. Be prepared for lengthy
    discussions with your partner however.

    *Note: If by chance you've read this review, taken my recommendation,
    have actually seen the movie and STILL believe you've wasted 2 hours of
    your life, I'd be happy to share my views on the whole meaning and plot
    of the film. See, that's why I liked it so much – it promotes
    discussion! As hard as it is though, I'll try summing it up by
    paraphrasing a rather depressing quote by Langella's character, who
    explains the significance of the simple box to an employee: "Your house
    is a box which you live in. The car that you drove to work is a box, on
    wheels. When you return home from work you sit in front of a box with
    moving images. You watch until the mind and soul rots and the box that
    is your body deteriorates, when finally you are placed into the
    ultimate box… to rest under the soil and earth."
