Posted Tue Mar 5, 2013 at 12:00 PM PST by

Roman Coppola's comedy starring Charlie Sheen will have a winning Blu-ray release in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate will be bringing 'A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III' to Blu-ray on May 14.

Golden Globe® winner Charlie Sheen* (TV's "Anger Management," TV's "Two And A Half Men," TV's "Spin City") stars alongside Jason Schwartzman ('Moonrise Kingdom') and Academy Award® nominee Bill Murray (Best Actor in a Leading Role, 'Lost In Translation,' 2003) in the fascinating comedy 'A Glimpse Inside the Mind Of Charles Swan IIl.' Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Roman Coppola (Best Writing - Original Screenplay, 'Moonrise Kingdom,' 2012), the delightfully imaginative film about one man's journey through a bad breakup is Coppola's return to full-length feature film directing.

Supported by an all-star cast including Golden Globe® nominee Patricia Arquette (Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama, "Medium," 2006), Aubrey Plaza (TV's "Parks And Recreation"), Katheryn Winnick ('Stand Up Guys') and Mary Elizabeth Winstead ('A Good Day to Die Hard), 'A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III' is a playful comedy of lost love, friendship, revenge fantasies and Brandy Alexanders.

Set in a stylized Los Angeles, Charles (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 (Winnick), 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 (Schwartzman), Saul (Murray) and his sister Izzy (Arquette) - he begins the hard road of self-evaluation to come to terms with a life without Ivana. Through it all, Charles seeks to answer the question: is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time?

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Audio Commentary with Writer/Director Roman Coppola, "The Making of Charles Swan" featurette, and "A Glimpse Into the Mind of Charles White" - an interview.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
