Recently debuting in Rome, Roman Coppola’s sophomore feature, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, is naturally one of the most anticipated independent films of 2013.
With an all-star cast, led by Charlie Sheen as the eponymous Charles Swan III, there’s plenty of reason to be excited.
“The film, set in a stylized Los Angeles, is a daring, playful comedy of lost love, friendship, revenge fantasies, and Brandy Alexanders. Charles (Charlie Sheen) is a successful graphic designer whose fame, money andcharm 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?”
Sheen stars alongside Bill Murray, Aubrey Plaza, Patricia Arquette, Jason Schwartzman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Katheryn Winnick, making for one of the most promising casts coming our way next year.
Coppola is directing from his own script, and also serves as producer alongside Youree Henley (Somewhere, The Bling Ring).
A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III is set for release in the US on 8th February, 2013. As of yet, there’s no word on when we can expect to see it in the UK, but I’m keeping my fingers very tightly crossed that it will be around the same time. For now, here are the first teaser posters, which you can click through to enlarge.
