The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty (2013) : The Story Of My Life


This movie, I suppose some would say, resembles my life a bit. I'm a dreamer. I identified with this movie so much.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty follows the life of a day dreamer.

If you ever zone out at your job, you'll definitely identify with the plot.
Walter Mitty is a dedicated old school film "negatives asset manager". He manages an enormous library of pictures and negatives for LIFE magazine. The problem is, everything is going digital and impersonal. His job is on the line. 
Walter (played by Ben Stiller) is madly in love with a co-worker, Cheryl (played by former Saturday Night Live cast member, Kristen Wiig) Walter has to balance the reality of his job and the real possibility that Cheryl likes him too with his fantasy world. Zoning out could cost him both.
The movie, also directed by lead actor Stiller, is a great family movie with a heartwarming story.

It's one of the best movies I've seen since "Inception".
