It's Movie Week: Man on Wire

I saw the trailer for Man on Wire on the Apple website last weekend and knew I was going to write about it here, but I wish I had done it earlier and beat NPR's David Edelstein to it. It documents the elaborate scheme of tightrope walker Philippe Petit, who executed his stunt between the twin towers of the World Trade Center in 1974. The film won the Jury Prize and Audience Award at Sundance this year.

If the trailer below piques your interest, visit Edelstein's review. The movie opened today in New York, naturally, and goes into wider release starting August 8, possibly in your town.
