Based on a famous story by James Thurber, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty tells the story of a man who daydreams to escape the mundanity of his everyday life. Take a look:
While this film isn't fantasy in the conventional sense (there are no elves, dragons, or magic), it is a film about the power of imagination and the way an escape from reality can actually end up having a profound impact on reality--both themes central to fantasy literature. Plus, the visuals of the film look simply stunning.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty opens on December 25, 2013.
