The Walk

This was a great movie!  It follows the true story of Philippe Petit, who was a wire walker that had the ultimate dream of walking on a wire connecting the towers of the World Trade Center in 1974 - which was over 1,300 feet above the ground and without a net!  I had always just viewed his walk as a publicity stunt and had never thought about “why” he did it or the incredible amount of planning that had to go into doing something like that.  Or how hard it would be to get a wire strung up there that was safe and without anyone noticing.  Also, he couldn’t do it alone and needed to find people he could trust to help him in his “coup,” as he called it.  I watched this movie because l was curious and it looked interesting – but it was so much more than I was expecting!  It was about following your dreams, finding your passion and doing what is right for YOU, and not letting anything or anyone stop you!
