This short drama is a tight observation of family life during the recession. Shot in one single living room, we see the ebb and flow of family life reflected in some pivotal moments through a particularly difficult time. However the digital hearth remains a constant source of comfort.

Comments on The Box
Excellent film! A great insight into the modern family affected by the recession. Well done!
A very relatable portrayal of family life. Quite surreal watching real life through a television, is this a contrast to reality television? Good work....
A great concept, brilliantly filmed. Perfect format for its running time and fab storytelling.
This young film maker will go far. A warm and witty depiction of life in front of the "The box" . I loved it.
