What is walter mitty movie about
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty by James ThurberMeet Walter Mitty.
Hes a Husband.
Hes a Captain of a Navy ship
Hes a toughest man on the trial
Hes the man who can a woman from distress and is a hero to all man kind.
Hes also worrying his wife, his co-workers, his boss and his shrink.
Walter Mitty has dreams. Dreams of being a hero. But hes not dreaming them in bed, like everyone else is. Hes dreaming these events while driving, while shopping, talking to his wife, walking down the street. He sees himself as a hero to everyone, but doesnt really do anything about it. Hes just your average Joe that is taking his wife to get her hair done. And while she is getting her hair done, he runs errands. But everyday life, everything that we see, feel, touch, hear generates this scene in his head where he is the hero to the story and hes living it right then and there!! While everyone looks at him like hes weird, he doesnt see what wrong with this!!
As a writer I was thrilled that I am not the only person that this is happening too!!! I cant tell you how many times I will be sitting at the Library that I work at and there will be an event that will take place, or someone says something to me and it triggers a scene playing in my head and Im living that story out (in my head of course). I am a writer and I am always getting scenarios playing out in my head that sometimes leave me speechless until I am writing that out in my laptop. Sometimes I talk out loud the scenes but hey, Im a writer its allowed. (I think....)
The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty
Let me be frank: to use the words of the august founder of this website, I hated, hated, hated this movie. From Ben Stiller's pantomimes of romantic hesitation in its opening moments as Walter Mitty goes all J. Alfred Prufrock on eHarmony. For all that, I'm giving the movie two stars, which, in star speak, translates to "fair. I'm doing this because I'm not entirely sure that my negative reaction isn't a sort of personal carry-over from Stiller's last directorial effort, the intermittently amusing but entirely smug and hateful " Tropic Thunder. In "Tropic Thunder," that privilege was articulated via biting the Hollywood hand that fed him and telling the audience that it was getting what it deserved; here, the privilege manifests itself in Stiller's ability to take a big film crew to Greenland, Iceland, and a relatively safe stand-in for Afghanistan to impart some vague, semi-earnest be-here-now bromides to the paying customers. She is played, with surprisingly noncommittal likeability for such an appealingly idiosyncratic performer, by Kristen Wiig.
