Distraught and unable to cope with a break-up from the beautiful Helena, surgeon Nick Cavanaugh is surprised to find her at his mercy after a terrible accident. He proceeds to remove her limbs one by one, leaving her to live in a box.

Boxing Helena billed itself as “the most talked about movie of the year,” and for the most part, it lived up to that reputation, even if the critical and commercial opinions were mixed. In the years since, director Jennifer Lynch has carved out a filmmaking career for herself, mostly directing episodes of television shows like “The Walking Dead,” “American Horror Story,” and “Teen Wolf.” But, for many fans, she will always be remembered for this subtly shocking debut feature.
