The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
One of the most underrated and underappreciated movies hits home video shelves for audiences to discover. Based on the James Thurber two-page short story, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" is about a quiet, put-upon middle-aged guy who learns to actually "live" his life when he goes on a journey to find a missing film negative. Directed by and starring Ben Stiller and co-starring Kristen Wiig, this beautiful looking film is at times an over-the-top comedy, but mostly it’s a gentle and reflective portrait of a man who opens himself up to new experiences, and in doing so learns to appreciate himself even when those around him might not be able to. It’s a lovely film that sort of sneaks up on you at the end.
Special features are okay, but not the reason to buy the disc.
