To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life. This is a slogan of this film.
The film tells the story of Walter Mitty (Ben Schiller), the film development and printing manager who has worked in Life Magazine for 16 years, repeating the same work every day, and his life is dull and dull. He is introverted and looks like a bystander in the face of life. He is often in a trance, fantasizing about the impossible, shuttling between reality and fantasy, dreaming of daytime heroes. Until one day the company was acquired, the magazine can only issue the last issue, the cover of this issue is from the famous photographer Sean's No. 25 film, but everywhere possible, no number 25 film can be found. In order to find film No. 25, he had to find Sean himself. Encouraged by Cheryl (Kristen Wiig) and his mother, Walter Mitty embarks on a real adventure to the ice sheet, the sea and the Himalayas in search of Sean.
Perhaps at the beginning of life, there is a voice in our heart that guides us to find our destiny. But most people do not follow the inner guidance, ignore the inner voice, until abandoned by destiny, the inner voice is temporarily blocked. Because when you can't listen to your inner voice, it becomes a kind of torture, a thorn in a mundane life.
After being smoothed out by the trifles of life, I often yearn for a magnificent life, which is always the hidden pain of all the people in the world who have read some books and have a little dream. Because the dream is too difficult to achieve, most people comfort themselves with commendable mediocrity and take mediocrity as the final conclusion of their lives. But I still want to use the lines from the play to encourage myself: Stay gold, pony boy. At the end of the film, although Walter lost his job, the emotional road has just taken the first step. But I believe that life will give back to those who strive for their dreams, even if they only take the first step!
