The swimming hole is actually an abandoned 350 foot deep quarry. DiCillo told all who went in that it was only 25 feet deep max. An expert swimmer at a nearby quarry was bitten by a poisonous snake and drowned several days before filming began. See more »

Tom diCillo's most succesful film is the also great 'Living In Oblivion', but 'Box Of Moonlight' is my favorite one. This movie is really excellent, among all the films that deserved success but didn't get it, this film is the one that deserved it the most, a real life experience. Probably John Torturro best part ever and of his best performances too. This is his best film since Miller's Crossing (91, by Coen Bros.). If you wanna see a real masterpiece, go check this one out and, I bet, you'll remember it for the rest of your life.
