A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, which premiered at the Rome Film Festival got the first trailer that features Charlie Sheen being Charlie Sheen.
The second feature from Roman Coppola is a kind of an acid trip which runs a breezy 85 minutes. In fact, the film is a wacky comedy in the vein of Moonrise Kingdom and The Darjeeling Limited, co-written by frequent Wes Anderson collaborator, Coppola.
Sheen actually stars as a graphic designer whose life slides into despair when his girlfriend breaks up with him. Set in a skewed version of contemporary Hollywood, the film also stars Patricia Arquette as his sister, Bill Murray as his business manager, Jason Schwartzman as a stand-up comic, Aubrey Plaza as his design studio producer, Katheryn Winnick as the girl who dumps him, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as her best friend.
A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III hit theaters on February 8th, 2013.

And here’s the 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 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?
