Duct tape is a quick-and-dirty method of mending broken objects. But can the adhesive also mend a broken marriage?
That's more or less the premise of Serious Moonlight, the shrill black comedy written by the late Adrienne Shelly and directed by actress Cheryl Hines, Shelly's chum and costar in the writer's flaky comedy Waitress.
The confined spaces of Serious Moonlight (most of the action takes place in the bathroom of a country house owned by the aggrieved husband and wife), its few characters (only four major speaking parts), and windy monologues suggest that Shelly may have conceived it as a theater piece. This film is many things, but cinematic is not one of them.
