Does the name Philippe Petit ring a bell? It belongs to the man who is the subject of this film that is opening in theaters:
Since his death-defying walk in 1974, Petit has been the subject of other films and books, both nonfiction and fiction that deal with his highwire walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City.
