The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

“‘I haven't really been anywhere noteworthy or mentionable,’ an apologetic Walter Mitty says. By the end of this magical comic adventure, Walter has logged enough miles and wild experiences to fill a book, or a freewheeling, feel-good movie. Adapted from the short story, Stiller stars in and directs this modern-day tale of a milquetoast magazine assistant whose dream life usually gets the better of him.
“Walter's place of work, Life magazine, has been newly acquired by a bunch of glib suits and heading for an online-only existence, Life is the perfect metaphor for Walter. He's in charge of an archive of extraordinary images, documenting historic events, places, and people, and yet he hasn't been party to, or visited, or known any of them.
“As a mild-mannered worker bee with limited social skills, Walter eyes his coworker Cheryl Melhoff (Kristen Wiig) from afar. He just imagines himself coming to her rescue, or wowing her with his bravery and athleticism.
“Beautifully shot (on real film, in real locations), The Secret Life of Walter Mitty sends our hapless hero on a real-life quest - to turn up a lost negative submitted by one of Life's star shooters. Hence, Walter jumping out of a helicopter into the storm-tossed North Atlantic. Hence, Walter longboarding down the sloping blacktop of an Icelandic lava-scape. Hence, and hence again.
“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is about finding the courage, taking the leap, getting out of your comfort zone. Stiller's character's globe-trotting derring-do, the care and consideration on display in his directing - carry the movie a long way. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a fantasy to enjoy.” - Stephen Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
