Loosely inspired by sci-fi writer Richard Matheson's 1970 short story, Button, Button, Cameron Diaz, James Marsden and Frank Langella co-star in the latest mind-warp thriller from the director of Donnie Darko.

A few weeks before Christmas 1976, attractive middle-class American couple Norma and Arthur Lewis (Diaz and Marsden) receive a mysterious apparatus that comes with a potentially life-changing proposition: press the button within twenty-four hours to receive one million tax-free dollars in cash for the price of a human soul somewhere in the world.

"Richard Kelly's spiritual sequel to Donnie Darko. Foreboding and off-kilter, a late-night riff on '70s sci-fi that confirms the director as an original" Empire (Australia)
