"…an aesthetic breakthrough for [Ben Stiller]."—New York Film Festival
Recently the Centerpiece selection at New York Film Festival, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a warm and charming comic fable from director Ben Stiller. Updating Columbus native James Thurber’s classic short story for a contemporary era, star and director Stiller has assembled a star-studded cast including Kristen Wiig, Sean Penn, Patton Oswalt, Adam Scott, and the legendary Shirley MacLaine to tell the story of the title daydreamer whose life as a photo researcher at Life magazine takes a powerful and adventurous turn as he goes on the hunt for a long-lost photograph. Already tipped to be a holiday blockbuster and strong Oscar contender, we’re excited to partner with the Thurber House to present a special preview screening exclusively for Wexner Center members and friends of the Thurber House on the cusp of the story’s 75th anniversary.
Copresented with the Thurber House.
Free for Wexner Center members (limit 2 online, 4 at Wexner Center ticket desk) and Friends of the Thurber House.
