Joseph Gordon-Levitt turns in an amazing performance in the new film The Walk. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, the true story centers on French high wire artist Philipe Petit’s walk between the World Trade Center towers in 1974.
During his training, Levitt became very proficient in wire walking, and though the film is a gorgeous visual spectacle, The Walk is a risky movie. As Levitt accurately points out, The Walk is an unconventional action film that hopefully will find a sizable audience. With ambitious narratives like Forrest Gump, Cast Away and Who Framed Roger Rabbit on his resume, it’s easy to see why the ambitious scope of The Walk was right up Zemeckis’ creative alley.
The Walk is now playing theaters.
