A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III


Set in a stylized 1970s Los Angeles, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III is an offbeat comedy of lost love, friendship, revenge fantasies, and Brandy Alexanders. Charles Swan III (Charlie Sheen) is an eccentric and highly 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 confusion, doubt and heartbreak. With the support of his loyal pals – Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray), and his sister, Izzy (Patricia Arquette) – Charles begins a delirious journey of self-reflection to try and come to terms with a life without Ivana. Written and directed by Roman Coppola (co-writer of Moonrise Kingdom), the film is a highly unconventional look at the ups and downs of the relationship rollercoaster that begs the question: Is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time?
