Still shot from the movie: The Box.

The Box

If there is no such thing as a free lunch, then there is surely no such thing as a no-strings-attached magic box that can grant you a million dollars. Yet when such a mysterious gift is placed in the hands of Norma and Arthur Lewis (Cameron Diaz and James Marsden), the temptation to take the money may prove greater than their concern for the consequences.

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

What are people willing to do for money in this movie? How do television reality programs reflect what other kinds of activities people are willing to engage in for cash?

What crimes are easier to commit because of anonymity? How does white-collar crime, home invasions and Internet fraud fit into this type of corruption?

How do our individual choices impact other people? What far-reaching effects do the characters in this story experience? In what ways can our decisions come back to haunt us?
