Ben Stiller directs and stars in a inspirational fable about a daydreaming everyman who goes on an incredible adventure. Walter Mitty (Ben Stiller) works in the photographic department of the legendary 'Life' magazine, whose iconic covers feed his rich fantasy life. This lonely singleton is attracted to recently separated co-worker Cheryl (Kristen Wiig), but too withdrawn to express his feelings. Now both their jobs are threatened as the magazine prepares to cease publication and become a digital product. When Walter loses an image from star photographer Sean O'Connell (Sean Penn) that was to grace the cover of the last issue, he is finally forced to act. Embarking on a breathtaking journey to track down the elusive snapper, Walter learns to live the dream as he travels as far afield as Volcanic Iceland and the Himalayas. Ben Stiller directs and stars in this uplifting modern adaptation of James Thurber's famous short story from 1939.
