Twelve men have walked on the moon, but only one man – Philippe Petit (Gordon-Levitt) – has ever walked the void between the World Trade Center towers.
It's 1974 and French high-wire artist Philippe Petit is a young busker trying to make a living when he decides to make it his mission to walk a tightrope between the tallest buildings in the world – the World Trade Center towers in America. Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Kingsley), and Philippe attempts to execute his mad plan and overcome daunting physical obstacles, betrayals, countless close calls and overwhelming odds to beat the system and execute their mad plan.
Using cutting edge technology to bring to life the true story of Philippe Petit, The Walk 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.
