Box of Moonlight

Leave the beaten path.

John Turturro strikes out and chases the life unlived with Sam Rockwell in this low-budget charmer, a hidden gem from my early video store days.

It’s crafted by Tom DiCillo, who carved out a solid niche as one of the better independent film directors of the ’90s.

Now, he hasn’t directed a fiction film in 14 years, though he has put out two docs and helmed a batch of TV episodes.

I’d love to see him return to his roots.

But, until then, we can treasure the lovely lyricism of this offbeat, and utterly winning, comedy/drama.
