The manager of the negative assets sector of Life magazine, Walter Mitty, has been working for sixteen years in the magazine and has a tedious life, not going anywhere but from his home to his job and vice-versa. He is an escapist, daydreaming into a world of fantasy many times a day. Walter has a crush on the recently hired Cheryl Melhoff but he is too shy to invite her on a date and he is trying to contact her through via online dating. The magazine is preparing to release the latest printed edition and the loathsome manager of transition Ted Hendricks is preparing an inevitable downsizing over the next few days.

When Walter Mitty visits Sean O'Connell in the Himalayas, O'Connell is using an old Nikon F3/T camera with what appears to be a Nikon 400/2.8G lens attached. While it's technically possible to use that combination, it's useless in reality since the lens has no aperture ring and thus no way to set the aperture on that body. A professional photographer would not use this combination, especially if said photographer preferred vintage equipment. See more »

I have given this a "10" rating. There was one minor issue I had with the movie that would make it not quite that in my mind, but a "9" rating would be an injustice to this extraordinary film and, since I'm unable to give it a 9.75 or something like that, "10" it is.
This movie strikes an incredible balance between indy/art-house and Hollywood epic. The pathos of the main character is well-captured in subtle ways, as are the feelings of triumph when he is able to go beyond his own self-imposed limitations. The cinematography is extraordinary-- this is a drama that *must* be seen in theaters. I expect that most adults with any sensitivity at all will find this a highly satisfying experience that speaks to their very cores. My wife and I were privileged to see it in an advanced screening, and can't believe we have to wait another couple of weeks for the official release to go back and see it again.
