Conceived in a dentist’s waiting room in the late 1960s, tightrope walker Philippe Petit decided he would perform to the world by walking the gap between New York’s Twin Towers. Recreated by director Robert Zemeckis, celebrated for his captivating visual storytelling, The Walk uses cinematic wizardry to translate the epic scale of Petit’s stunt to the screen. From recruiting a team, illegal recces and injuries, Zemeckis takes us step by step until we are standing atop the towers with Petit, feeling the rush of the wind, the vast expanse of sky and the creak of the wire beneath him. For those that have seen the moving documentary Man on Wire that recreated the walk through photographs and interviews this film adds breathtaking life to the story.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
