Synopsis

A lonely daydreamer retreats into elaborate fantasies to escape his unexceptional existence in this long-awaited, second screen version of a 1930s short story. Uplifting and whimsical, the modernised, comic fable sees funnyman Ben Stiller direct himself as the titular nobody Walter Mitty, whose daily grind is far removed from the exciting world of heroism, romance and action he imagines in his head. But the guy who’s too timid to even ask out a co-worker he fancies gets a dramatic rebirth when he’s forced to embark on a real-life, global adventure to save his job on a New York magazine. Suddenly, Walter’s leaping from airborne helicopters and wrestling sharks, inspirationally becoming the person he always wanted to be.
