We've been looking forward to A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III ever since it was announced, primarily because this is Roman Coppola's return to directing, following stints cowriting with Wes Anderson (Moonrise Kingdom, The Darjeeling Limited) and doing some second-unit directing on not only Anderson's movies, but on his father (Francis Ford Coppola) and sister's (Sofia Coppola) movies too. Essentially, it's his time, and luckily for us he's bringing with him an eccentric cast featuring some of our favorites, like Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Patricia Arquette and Charlie Sheen.
The comedy, about a man (Sheen) experiencing the trials and tribulations of getting over a failed relationship, hits theaters on February 8, and we have one of five exclusive posters that have arrived online today. You can see our poster below, and the others at sites like Moviefone, Rotten Tomatoes, MovieTickets and Rolling Stone. For more on the film, see the official Facebook page.
And here's the film's official 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 selfevaluation 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?
