Film review: ‘The Walk’ ★★★

New Yorkers staring skywards from below the World Trade Center, struck by a sense of terror and confusion, evokes dark memories of the not too distant past. However, in The Walk (2015), the latest film from Robert Zemeckis, the onlookers’ bewildered emotions are mingled with admiration, awe and sheer disbelief. This is due to French high-wire walker Philippe Petit (played with characteristically boyish charm by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) attempting to traverse a cable linking the towers at 1,400 feet above terra firma.
