I built quote the bucket list in 2013 and “The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty” is probably the one I been meaning to see the most. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is based off a 1939 short story of the same name written by Norman Z. McLeod. This is the second film adaptation and unlike the last film or book, moves away from the satirical take on the subject and goes with a more homey and earnest feel.
This film follows Walter Mitty in the last days of Life Magazine. Walter tends to day-dream of much more adventurous scenarios than his daily job as a negative film asset manager would allow. It’s a self discovery story, its done with a-lot of heart and plenty of sentiment.
