THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY Blu-ray Review

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is currently available on Blu-ray and DVD. Ben Stiller directs and stars in this dramatic comedy that also stars Kristen Wiig, Sean Penn, Adam Scott, Patton Oswalt and Shirley MacLaine.

We’ve all had moments where we daydream, but not to the extent that Walter Mitty does. Mitty (Stiller) is a mild mannered daydreamer who works for Time Life Magazine overseeing the negative photo assets that are used for publication. The magazine has been bought out and is being turned into an online publication and everyone is at risk of losing their job. Mitty is in love with his co-worker Cheryl, but is too shy to ask her out on a date. He is regularly harassed by his new boss played by Adam Scott for daydreaming.

Mitty’s life is turned upside down when he loses the negative that is to be used for the cover photo of the final issue of the magazine. He decides to embark on a journey to find photographer Sean O’Connell in hopes of finding the negative. This journey helps him to not break out of his shell.

The film takes audiences on a journey to some of the most beautiful regions in the world and features breathtaking photography. I wish that I would have seen this on the big screen. but the Blu-ray provides amazing sound and picture quality that create an immersive experience.
