Di ruangannya yang terpencil di antara timbunan arsip foto majalah LIFE, Walter Mitty bagaikan sekeping roda gigi yang tak berarti. Ia lalu membenamkan diri dalam lamunan dan khayalan akan hidup yang lebih menarik. Ironisnya, majalah tempat ia bekerja menawarkan petualangan. Di tengah proses transisi yang menyakitkan di tempat kerjanya, sebuah klise foto yang hilang mengantarkan Walter Mitty untuk bangkit menjalani hidup sepenuhnya.

 

Film yang disutradarai Ben Stiller ini merupakan remake dari film berjudul sama tahun 1947 yang intinya sama: keberanian untuk bangkit dari lamunan dan menjalani hidup dengan lebih semarak. Versi 2013 ini berhasil pula menyisipkan konteks menarik, yaitu perpindahan media dari cetak ke daring berikut dengan segala konsekuensinya, termasuk terhadap kehidupan pribadi para penggiatnya, yang peran sesungguhnya lebih dari sekeping roda gigi tadi.

 

--

Walter Mitty (Ben Stiller) spends day-after-day in his tiny office at LIFE magazine, organizing the photos to be published. To 'escape' his reality, he often daydreams that his life is more exciting that it actually is. (Un)fortunately, a master-piece to be included in their final edition has gone missing. As it is his responsibility, Mitty is determined to recover this particular photo. (Un)expectedly, this journey forces him to get out of his head from the clouds and live those dreams.

 

Based on a short story written by James Thurber back in 1939, this film is a remake of a 1947 film of the same title. Both films essentially had the same message: the courage to get of your comfort zone and live your life fully. This 2013 version also succeeds in incorporating the consequences of the growth of online media and its effect on the lifes of the people who work in the media industry.

Ulasan

As a director, this feels like Stiller’s moment. Mitty is a film that bravely rejects cynicism.

In many ways, it’s the new Forrest Gump. Go with it and it is, in all senses, wonderful.

-- Olly Richards, Empire

 

So much of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is meant as inspirational – the purposeful,

slow-motion shots of people running, the resonant rock music, the mountain vistas –

that it might leave you feeling inspired into submission.

-- Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
