Man on Wire is a documentary film  about a French man walking on wires, essentially trying to reach the goal of walking on a wire connecting the Twin Towers. The message that the film sends to the viewers is to never give up on what you want to achieve. The funambulist (or tightrope walker), Philippe Petit, along with his friends took years to plan the logistics of getting onto one of the towers and setting up the rope; much of the film follows this preparation. Suspenseful, visual, and surprising, this movie reminds you to always go after what you want.
