'Loretta' is a multi-genre short about the conflict a screenwriter feels between his work and his woman. As he tries to mentally resolve the situation he takes a cathartic journey from the silent era to noir and finally the 1980s, unwittingly illustrating along the way the truth behind the breakdown of his relationship.

Ambitious, well done, witty piece that spoofs the various film eras it recreates.
