Name that Sci Fi Story

Name that science fiction story / movie: Two people in love with each other are trapped in a box. The box is possibly in some alternative dimension with a Panopticon-type God person. I think the story was written by a famous sci fi author.

So, the above is basically all I remember. I know I saw the story adapted into a movie (maybe just a television movie?) where two people were trapped in a translucent box. The idea was, if I remember correctly, that their new reality consisted of living this life in this isolated universe forever, overseen by this God-type figure. All this may be central to the plot, or completely incidental.
If you can produce a movie still, that'd be great, because it's most likely to jog my memory.
