STORY.
Walter Mitty is an employee at Life magazine who frequently daydreams of fantastic adventures. Photojournalist Sean O'Connell has sent a special photograph that he says captures the "Quintessence" of Life magazine and that it should be used for the cover of the magazine's final issue. Mitty works in the negative assets department, and has never lost a photo in his sixteen years of work at Life magazine, but negative 25 is missing. Using the other negatives as clues Mitty decides to go in search of Sean O'Connell and find the missing negative.

CRITIC VIEW.
Ben Stiller has been a wizard as an actor and a maker has a remarkable history of his films, not to forget There’s something about Mary, Night at the Museum and many more this time round has hit the bull’s-eye.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a milestone of a film, excellent performance by Ben Stiller and co actor Kristen wiig.
A simply adventurous and fantasy filled tale of an employee at Life magazine who is on a hunt for a negative[cover of the magazine's final issue].
In the event of pursue there is some spectacular stunning sequence where he is on a skateboarding, an erupting volcano and fighting off a great white shark.
Movie is all about life and being in love with hopes and imaginings.
The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty will give you a transitory entertainment and you will be out with joie de vivre.
Just don’t miss it.
