The film captures the story of Philippe Petit (Joesph Gordon-Levitt) and his dream to hang his wire on the newly constructed Twin Towers and walk on it. With the help of his girlfriend Annie (Charlotte Le Bon), his mentor Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley) and other associates, Philippe puts his plan into motion and heads to New York so he can preform the greatest stunt the world has ever seen. However pulling off this act was easier said then done.
The Walk is something else. In a creative way, this film captures the story of Philippe's walk by using a range of cinematic tones. Along with Joesph Gordon-Levitt's stellar performance the movie is a remarkable spectacle by using technical elements to the best of their ability. Much to my surprise, The Walk turned out to be a remarkable experience that not only gave Robert Zemeckis another hit film, but it turned out to be a must see film for 2015.
