Short film, ‘Swing,’ holds its hometown debut Thursday at The Myrna Loy

“Swing,” a short film by three Helenans, makes its hometown debut 4 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 22, at The Myrna Loy, followed by a Q&A with the actors and director.

It’s the story of a marriage that’s grown a bit stale until a surprise package arrives on the couple’s doorstep.

While the object in the box delights Terri, portrayed by veteran Helena actor, Mary Riitano, it horrifies her husband, Paul, played by Andy Cottrell of Cow Tipping Comedy.

He describes it as “a comedy, drama, romance. It’s very light and fun and it has a little dash of magical realism. We shot it seven years ago.
