recommendation: the secret life of walter mitty

Cheryl (Kristen Wiig): Life is about courage and going into the unknown.

This film inspires me to conquer the world. Life’s motto is:

"To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life."

And this film, whether it be the love story or Mitty’s personal journey to discover what it is to live and take charge of his life, or even Mitty’s sister getting her part in Grease, is about taking the bull by the horns and making things happen.

The soundtrack is beautiful. My favourite song is the unpronounceable Eyjafjallajökull, by Theodore Shapiro, José González and Mark Graham. The soundtrack in general is by Theodore Shapiro, featuring José González, with a lot of humming. Absolutely stunning and really pulls at the heart. Very inspirational music once you’ve watched the film.

I highly recommend this film as it’s my favourite. I’ve watched it more than any film I haven’t studied.

Go watch it (legally) now!
