Watch The Short Film “It’s Getting Late”
In the translucent LA dusk we discover four women living very different lives. The camera follows each as they wind down their working days, their four stories weaving together as each prepares for their evening.
Shot by Iranian-American screenwriter and director, Massy Tadjedin, with a stellar international cast, Aubrey Plaza, Gemma Arterton, Patricia Clarkson and Rinko Kikuchi, culminating in a gripping cameo performance by rising songstress, Zola Jesus.
It’s Getting Late is the fourth film in Miu Miu’s series of short films, the Women’s Tales, by leading female directors. Each film explores the feminine love affair with Miu Miu through the lens of their diverse sensibilities. It follows Miu Miu’s Women’s Tales by Zoe Cassavetes, Lucrecia Martel and Giada Colagrande.
A24 Acquires U.S. Rights To “A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III”
A24, a film company focused on distribution, financing and production with headquarters in New York City, announced today that the company has acquired all U.S. rights to Roman Coppola’s A GLIMPSE INSIDE THE MIND OF CHARLES SWAN III. The film was written, directed and produced by Coppola (who co-wrote Wes Anderson’s MOONRISE KINGDOM), and stars Charlie Sheen, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, and Patricia Arquette, and co-stars Aubrey Plaza, Katheryn Winnick, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Coppola produced the film with Youree Henley, and the film was executive produced by Michael Zakin and Robert Maron, and features a score by Liam Hayes. A24 will release the film in theaters nationwide in February 2013. Digital entertainment curator FilmBuff will handle all domestic digital distribution.
The film, set in a stylized Los Angeles, is a daring, playful comedy of lost love, friendship, revenge fantasies, and Brandy Alexanders. Charles (Charlie Sheen) is a successful graphic designer whose fame, money andcharm 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?
Coppola says: “I am excited to work with A24, a new company with a lot of vitality who isn’t afraid of trying something new and pushing the boundaries. Those are the type of people I’m drawn to. Their collective work demonstrates that they’ll bring verve, energy and pizzazz to the release of the film. And the fact that they are named A24 after a road in Italy is appealing — that kind of playfulness and respect for those types of things is something I value.”
A24 said: “We couldn’t be more proud to launch our company than with Roman’s film. He’s an innovative storyteller who has made a romp of a movie that looks like it was as much fun to make as it was for us to watch. Charlie’s heartbreaking, hysterical, and touching performance reminds you of why he shot to stardom on screen.”
Bart Walker of Cinetic Media negotiated the deal for the film with A24.
