Synopsis

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

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
