THE WALK

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - News -

8.30PM, FOX­TEL MAS­TER­PIECE ★★★

The ab­so­lutely true and gen­uinely amaz­ing story of Philippe Petit (played by Joseph Gor­don-Levitt), a dec­o­rated French high­wire walker whose ul­ti­mate achieve­ment oc­curred 110 storeys above the foot­paths of New York. It was here, early one Au­gust morn­ing in 1974, that Petit took a lengthy stroll be­tween the twin tow­ers of the World Trade Cen­ter. Af­ter a slug­gish start, Gor­don-Levitt mas­ter­fully maps out each step of Petit’s au­da­cious sashay across the sky with both ex­act­ing skill and sur­pris­ing emo­tion.

High-wire act: Joseph Gor­don-Levitt stars in TheWalk.
