Walter Mitty is a bachelor who has never done anything noteworthy or been anywhere. He takes an interest in a coworker whom he has overheard joined eHarmony, so he joins as well, but even writing his profile is a struggle. Little does he know that over the course of the next two weeks his life will change dramatically (in the best sense), for Life magazine, where he has worked for 16 years, will be transitioning to online only release after a merger and they’ll be facing a massive layoff.
Directed, co-produced and acted by Ben Stiller in the leading role, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a little gem. Who knew Ben Stiller had this in him?! It has beautiful cinematography, breathtaking photography and cool special effects. Quirky and outrageously funny, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty shouldn't be missed.
