Walk the line.
The Walk is an adaptation of Philippe Petite’s memoir ‘To Reach The Clouds: My High Wire Walk Between The Twin Towers’, which focused on the high-wire artist’s walk between the World Trade Center towers in 1974. If this all sounds familiar it might be because Petite’s story was also the subject of the 2008 documentary Man On Wire. If none of this sounds familiar then maybe you’ve never seen Man On Wire. Maybe you’ve never even heard of Man On Wire.
“Twelve people have walked on the moon, but only one man has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy, and aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, Petit and his gang overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan. The film is a love letter to Paris and New York City in the 1970s, but most of all, to the Towers of the World Trade Center.”
The Walk stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale, Ben Kingsley and Ben Schwartz and is set for release in October, 2015.
