A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, Roman Coppola’s first film in over 10 years (although he’s written a few others but not directed) is an intriguing one, and now we get our first taste with a trailer for the movie. The film follows a graphic designer’s enviable life sliding into despair when his girlfriend breaks up with him. Charlie Sheen plays the titular Swan, with the likes of Bill Murray, Patricia Arquette, Dermot Mulroney and Mary Elizabeth Winstead co-starring.
It’s had a mixed reception at festival screenings, with some loving its quirky spirit, while others found the whole thing a little self-indulgent. The trailer certainly suggests that this will be a rather unusual one, with a free-wheeling spirit that’s as likely to delight as many as it infuriates – and Coppola certainly seems to be trying to channel Wes Anderson, who’s he worked with on several movies (for example they co-wrote the script for Moonrise Kingdom).
No UK release is currently set, but it reaches the US on February.
