If you’re looking for the term ‘feel-good‘ in your films, then I’d say you’ve come to the right place for THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY. There’s already been a few posters and clips out and about, but this – long – international trailer reveals a lot but gives away nothing. The film is Ben Stiller’s big directorial adventure and takes in the feeling of inspiring, alongside explorative. It goes by the old adage of escaping the life around you that scares you so much, the risks that you might not take and so forth and, if I’m honest, is right up my street.
It might also be up there for those of you who recall the criminally underrated STRANGER THAN FICTION, alongside the essence of ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND, we’ve got another for you to dive into and so, here’s that official synopsis:
An office worker who lives inside fantasy worlds where he gets to live an adventurous life while romancing his co-worker sets off a global journey to fix things when both of their jobs are threatened.
THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY stars Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig, Sean Penn, Adam Scott, Shirley MacLaine and more. It opens in the UK and US on December 26th, perfect holiday season viewing I think.
