It would appear that, amongst the Coppola clan, Roman is destined to go down as the weird one. Son of Francis, brother of Sofia, Roman has made a tidy living for himself directing music videos, assisting on other films shot within the family and co-writing scripts with Wes Anderson and he makes his return to the big screen with his first feature directorial effort since 2001 effort CQ.
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?
The first trailer has arrived online and it's an odd one, one that seems to embrace every criticism ever leveled at Wes Anderson and multiply them ten fold. Take a look below.
