‘A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III’ Trailer: Yeah, it’s Weird
‘A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III’ offers the return of Roman Coppola to the director’s chair. Roman, son of Francis Ford Coppola and brother to Sofia, hasn’t helmed a feature film since 2002’s ‘CQ’ and for his return to the big screen, he’s brought Charlie Sheen, Bill Murray and cousin Jason Schwartzman along for the ride.
Roman Coppola didn’t keep quiet in the intervening decade, having continued to direct music videos, and having written with Wes Anderson on the films ‘The Darjeeling Limited’ and this year’s ‘Moonrise Kingdom,’ on top of being a creator with a number of patents, like the Photobubble. But this trailer looks like the work of a man who’s been pent up and ready to make another movie.
Here’s the synopsis:
Set in a stylized Los Angeles, A GLIMPSE INSIDE THE MIND OF CHARLES SWAN III is a playful comedy of lost love, friendship, revenge fantasies, and Brandy Alexanders. Charles (Charlie Sheen) is a successful graphic designer whose fame, money and charm have provided him with a seemingly perfect life. When his true love, a perplexing beauty named Ivana, suddenly breaks off their relationship, Charles’ life falls apart, and he swirls into a downward spiral of doubt, confusion and reflection. With the support of his loyal intimates—Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray), and his sister, Izzy (Patricia Arquette)—he begins the hard road of self-evaluation to come to terms with a life without Ivana. The film begs the question: Is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time?
And here’s the trailer. The film hits theaters February 8.
