The Secret Life of Walter Mitty was an absolute delight. I worried that having seen the trailer (massively overlong trailer) I would have seen pretty much the whole film. I was pleasantly wrong.

The film is very warm and funny. I am not a big Ben Stiller fan but his portrayal was very contained and not his normal over the top characterisations. Kirsten Wiig is as good as ever.

It's the overall composition that steals the show though. From the manic superhero like special effects scenes to the sumptuous vistas the movie is a visual treat.

Even the opening titles have a touch of magic about them.Ben Stiller's directing is great and whoever put the soundtrack together was spot on.

Absolutely wonderful.
