New Roman Coppola film part of Cameo celebration

Charlie Sheen might actually redeem himself from a year of living dangerously with his latest role in A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III. The film is writer-and-director Roman Coppola's first feature since CQ in 2001; it boasts Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Aubrey Plaza (from Parks and Recreation, pictured).

The storyline revolves around a sex-obsessed hedonist (played, naturally, by Sheen) who's trying to win back the love of his life—she seems to have taken up with a pack of women dressed as stereotypical Native Americans rampaging through the high desert—with the help of a bearded, Ben Stiller–like Schwartzman.

Coppola hit the mark as co-writer on Wes Anderson's sweet-faced Moonrise Kingdom, so his latest project should hold some pleasant surprises. Cameo Cinema offers a sneak preview screening of the film Jan. 15, including a Q&A with Coppola himself afterward. The screening is part of a year's worth of special events commemorating the centennial of the Cameo, a single-screen theater purchased by Cathy Buck in 2005 that's retained its charm for a hundred years. The $50 ticket price includes admission to a live simulcast of the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, Jan. 13, at 5pm. Charles Swan III screens on Tuesday, Jan. 15, at Cameo Cinema. 1340 Main St., St. Helena. 8pm. $50. 707.963.3946.
