Twelve people have walked on the moon. Only one has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), is aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, who overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan.
Robert Zemeckis, the master director of such marvels as Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Back to the Future, Polar Express and Flight, again uses cutting edge technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story. The Walk is genuine big-screen cinema, a chance for moviegoers to viscerally experience the feeling of reaching the clouds.
Composer Alan Silvestri has scored some of the most iconically revered and profitable films in Hollywood history, amassing over a hundred credits to the tune of two Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, two Emmy Awards, and three Grammy Awards. While stylistically diverse, the unifying voice of Silvestri's work is an unmistakable rhythmic melody whose themes continue to embody movie excitement and drama for generations of moviegoers.
His energy and experimentation has brought excitement and emotion to the scores. The Walk is a new production of the decades long collaboration between Silvestri and Zemeckis. No film defines their creative relationship better than Zemeckis' 1994 Best Picture winner, Forrest Gump, for which Silvestri's gift for melodically beautiful themes earned him an Oscar nomination and the affection of film music lovers everywhere.
Silvestri has collaborated on 15 films with Zemeckis and comments about the director, "Only Robert Zemeckis could find a way to allow us all to stand alongside Philippe Petit as he faced unspeakable fear and doubt while daring to accomplish the impossible."
