In “Secret Life of Walter Mitty”, the main character (played genuinely well by Ben Stiller) goes in search of a missing negative sent by the famous photographer Sean O’Connell (short but superb performance by Sean Penn), which will eventually become the cover of the last ever issue of Life magazine before it goes out of print. His journey takes him through rough seas of Iceland all the way to ungoverned corners of Afghanistan and, finally, the snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas. Little does Walter know that he is in fact looking the meaning of his life, not that of the magazine.
