Walter Mitty is a character who has lived in Hollywood for decades, in 1947 Movie, several theater adaptations and here is it now again. Directing and starring Ben Stiller and Kristen Wiig, we have a musical comedy movie trailer, hitting the internet.
It’s a short story by James Thurber, which surfaced later as a movie in 1947, “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” starring Danny Kaye as Walter. Now with the same title, we have a remake of the film.
Watler is living in a world that is sort of rigid, not as full, and not as free where it ends up going and with this coming up movie they have tried to showcase the idea visually appealing.
In the movie Walter is an average worker in New York City, who works for Life magazine, and day dreams a lot. He goes to work every day and used to be an adventurous person when he was younger and then he lost it at some point in the row. He wants to experience adventure in his life.
However one day he meets Kristen Wiig who is new to the firm he works at and develops a crush and wants to impress her.
He has this habit of zoning out, and hallucinating adventures posing himself at a hero. The movie is so imaginative that at some point it breaks the boundaries of imagination and opens up possibilities of any situation.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a very inspiring and passionate piece of film making. The movie is essentially about life, living it to the fullest and not letting a moment pass you by.
The cinematography of the movie is absolutely gorgeous. It has a very soft and contemporary music. Music elevates a film and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty has got that music. It is a movie that is able to create that same feeling for the audience that the character has.
It opens nationwide on Christmas Day. As a director Ben dreams of an Oscar with this movie.
