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. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is an upcoming film based on a short story written by James Thurber.

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. Ben Stiller plays the title role of Walter Mitty, who one day wakes up and starts living in a fantasy fueled world where every adventure is possible.

Tenminste voor de buitenwereld, want in zijn ongelimiteerde fantasie beleeft Walter de meest bijzondere avonturen. 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. Danny Kaye is James Thurber’s Walter Mitty, the man whose daydreams propel him into fantastic adventures in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Vooral als hij aan collega Cheryl Melhof (Kristen Wiig) denkt, gaan zijn gedachten met hem op de loop en stapt hij in zijn denkbeeldige wereld. There is a part of him that is still trying to live out the life that his dad would have wanted. 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. Als de beheerder van het fotoarchief van Life Magazine staat zijn baan sowieso al op de tocht, want Life gaat over naar digitaal en er vallen veel ontslagen.
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.
Life's topfotograaf Sean O'Connell (Sean Penn) heeft zijn voorkeur uitgesproken voor een specifieke foto voor de laatste fysieke uitgave, een foto die Walter echter nergens kan vinden.
Een positief element van zijn probleem is dat Cheryl de aangewezen collega is die hem kan helpen Sean op te sporen zodat hij de desbetreffende foto, foto 25, alsnog in handen kan krijgen.
In an age where everything is shared in an instant, those personal moments can become fewer and fewer. Als blijkt dat foto 25 echt nergens te vinden is, doet Walter iets wat hij nog nooit heeft gedaan. We get the impression that his dad was pretty awesome; taking him to skateboarding competitions and giving him a mohawk. Hij stapt volledig uit zijn gebruikelijke veilige zone en in een groots avontuur als ultieme poging foto 25 bij de fotograaf zelf op te halen…The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty is een grappige goed in elkaar gezette film met een op het lijf van Ben Stiller geschreven rol. Het is een verre van alledaagse film waarin we samen met Walter een humorvol avontuur beleven die ons van New York, via Groenlang naar de pracht van de IJslandse natuur brengt, inclusief een vulkaanuitbarsting.
