"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."
-- Federico Fellini

photo for The Walk Twelve men have walked on the moon, but only one man — high-wire artist Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) — has ever walked in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers in 1974). Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), 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. Director Robert Zemeckis uses advanced technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story, a love letter to Paris and New York City in the 1970s, but most of all, to the towers of the World Trade Center.

Stars: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz. 2015, CC, MPAA rating: PG, 123 min., Drama, Box office gross: $10.137 million, Sony.
