Trailer for Roman Coppola's A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III
A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III is the debut as a director of a feature film for Roman Coppola, the co-writer of The Darjeeling Company and Moonrise Kingdom and of course family member of the Coppola's, and so there's a lot of interest in the trailer.
What's more is that the trailer leads with Charlie Sheen, and that is a risky proposition from the moment the contract is signed. Mind you he's backed with Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, Patricia Arquette, Dermot Mulroney, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aubrey Plaza and Katheryn Winnick.
A graphic designer's enviable life slides into despair when his girlfriend breaks up with him.
It's not just that though, the character he plays is a rich playboy who loses his girlfriend when she finds nude shots of his exes and he's heartbroken. He then heads out on wild ride of drugs, drink and depression in which we travel through his reality, dreams and nightmares.
Now that sounds like it's a pretty damn good role for Sheen as we now know him. Add into the mix Roman Coppola writing and directing and Jason Schwartzman and Bill Murray, even forgetting some of the other names, and there's a good reason to be interested in the film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, who have the trailer, the film is receiving a mix of critical comments and opinions are currently mixed. Watching the trailer though I wonder if this could be a bit of a recovery role for Sheen, although he would have to follow that up with some recovery of his own, but the film could see him coming back well. See what you think.
Would you be tempted to go and see Charlie Sheen in Roman Coppola's new film?
