Imagine for a second working at Life magazine, where the greatest events in history are recorded in the most vivid detail, and you are the guy that meticulously handles every image as they come in from the field.
When Walter can’t find film negative 25 from Sean O’Connell, the one that is to be the quintessence of all his photos and the final one for Life Magazine, he is encouraged to go on an adventure and find it by his love interest, Cheryl Melhoff (Kristen Wiig). Walter and Sean O’Connell have never met in person, yet they share a close friendship, working together for 16 years. On a side note, the scene with Walter in Greenland and the drunk helicopter pilot is so good! Probably one of the most memorable scenes in the movie is when Walter finally catches up with Sean O’Connell. When Walter asks O’Connell about negative 25 and finds out he had it but may have accidentally thrown it away, O’Connell doesn’t blow up at him like you would expect. I know some of the great quotes in the movie come directly from James Thurber’s original short story. According to Andy Baio, a Portland, Oregon-based computer programmer who has spent years tracking when and how Oscar screeners leak, a watermark showed DeGeneres' name. That doesn't mean that DeGeneres herself was foolish enough to seed file-trading platforms with an illegal copy of Walter Mitty. Ellen DeGeneres reps add that they aren't certain whether Walter Mitty leaked from their show or not. Baio says he will wait until Academy Award nominees are announced to update his annual spreadsheet of piracy statistics. Mitty’s another story revolves around his office where he has a crush over Cheryl Melhoff(Kristen Wiig) his co-worker and is ridiculed by his colleagues. For a movie which has been in gestation from 1994 and after many rewrites it should have been of a different level. He works in the basement of Life Magazine’s corporate office, processing film negatives in what appears to be a massive, windowless, and well-organized darkroom. Like many men, he seems to be struggling with the inner desire to be something or do something significant with his life and fantasizes about himself as a hero or lover.
When he comes back to the office he sees Sean’s picture and imagines Sean slowly summoning him to come into the adventurous world.
I like to think that to Walter, O’Connell is something of a father figure rather than just a legend of a man living the life that Walter wished he lived.


Olafur Darri Olafsson (yeah I don’t know how to pronounce his name either) plays the pilot and does such an excellent job. He’s parked out on a ridge in the Himalayas waiting for the sight of the elusive snow leopard, known locally as the “Ghost Cat”. When Walter asks what it was I think O’Connell has already decided to keep it as one of those “in the moment” pictures. Instead, it appears as though a copy of the film was sent to The Ellen DeGeneres Show before a visit from Ben Stiller on December 4. According to Baio, Oscar screeners for Her, Frozen and The Wolf of Wall Street also appeared online on Wednesday.
In 2012, after examining a decade worth of data, he observed that leaks of Oscar screeners were on the downswing but that people were uploading alternative DVD or Blu-ray rips earlier than ever. The story of life magazine which was acquired by Time magazine and now exists only in an online archival format. An otherwise imaginative Mitty begins to live his life when he jumps of a helicopter into the freezing sea infested with sharks. A dull, anonymous job, an overbearing mother, and a wife who, although loving, keeps him on a short leash. If we didn’t have the ability to experience his fantasy filled “zoning out” spells along with him, he would seem to be a pretty dull guy. However, he doesn’t just have those thoughts while mowing the grass or on a quiet weekend when he is alone, he has them all the time, mentally and physically checking out in the middle of conversation.
However, for himself, he left behind the dreams of that skateboarding kid, and worse, felt a wound from his father’s death that he didn’t know how to deal with. I believe we can begin to see how Walter’s imagination could get away from him, but more importantly, I think it is something many men can relate to, though to a lesser degree. Walter Mitty is a guy that lost himself when he lost his dad and his adventures are a way for him to find himself and deal with the death of his father.
Screenwriter Steve Conrad has taken the germ of the idea from James Thurber’s short story and the 1947 film of the same name. The fairly wide shots Mitty skateboarding in Greenland and the aerial shots when he scales the upper Himalayas will be visually remembered.
The manager of acquisition Ted Hendricks (Adam Scott) is in charge of the downsizing and responsible for Life’s online transition.


Finding himself bored and unfulfilled in real-life, he retreats to a world of fantasy in which he embarks on imaginary intrigues and adventures, filled with romance and heroism, that his true mild-mannered self could never hope to undertake. There is a part of him that is still trying to live out the life that his dad would have wanted. He has adapted the idea to his style which neither is as funny as the previous version nor as inspirational as Conrad thought to be in his version.
This is his "secret life." His real life takes a turn, however, when an incident at work threatens his job, and the job of a coworker that he admires. While helping his mom move into a new place his sister finds an unused backpack of his with an equally unused travel journal. Instead of living that life like Sean O’Connell (the adventurous photographer played by Sean Penn), he lives it in his imagination.
Then another thing happens, which is just such good writing: O’Connell doesn’t take the picture. As mentioned before, the movie is neither entirely comical nor adventurous and which is why the movie failed to leave a mark.
Not only is the movie fun to watch, the story is chocked full of subtle but deep sub-stories that leave you thinking about its meaning, both for yourself and the characters, long after you’ve watched it. He says that when the moment is just right he wants to stay in it without the distraction of the camera. The moment of the film is when Mitty finds Sean over the Himalayas, waiting to click the picture of a Snow Leopard which is supposedly to be seen.
He must call on the skills and behaviors he developed in his secret life to solve real-world problems. Walter soon learns that leading the life of action and adventure that he always dreamed of is more difficult than it looks.
In an age where everything is shared in an instant, those personal moments can become fewer and fewer. We get the impression that his dad was pretty awesome; taking him to skateboarding competitions and giving him a mohawk.
