You don’t see many phone boxes, or booths, as they call them in North America, these days. We all have mobiles now, and the humble red phone box has disappeared from many streets and gone on to find new leases of life. One of the films that hastened that demise has to be the 2002 film Phonebooth. It will have you wanting to visit a Vodafone Carrickmacross store using https://kingcommunications.ie/vodafone-stores-near-me/carrickmacross/ as soon as possible.
Colin Farrell’s character Stu Shepard is not a nice man. He is married and having an affair (with Katie Holmes, so it is a little understandable). He doesn’t want his wife to know about his affair, so he pops into a Phonebooth to call Katie Holmes and arrange a date. As he does this, a Pizza delivery man appears and gives him a pizza. Stu reacts angrily and finishes his call to Katie. When the call ends, the phone rings. Stupidly, he answers it.
The voice on the other end tells him he is an evil man, and he has to tell them what’s going on. ‘Shan’t”, says Stu. The voice on the line says ok, but I’ve got a sniper rifle pointed at your phone booth, so I think you should reconsider it. Again Stu is dubious, but this changes when the Caller fires a bullet, with pinpoint accuracy, past his head. He then rings Katie Holmes and admits to being married. However, that is only the start of the events in the Phonebooth.
