THE WALK is a US drama about the French high-wire artist who walked between the World Trade Center towers in New York City.

Language

There is mild bad language which includes 'merde', 'bastard', 'crap', 'shit', 'hell', 'arse', SOB' and 'Jesus Christ'. A policeman uses the term 'frog' to describe the Frenchmen when they are arrested.

Threat

There are occasional moments of mild threat during high-wire walks. In one scene a man briefly imagines a friend tumbling off a beam and down an elevator shaft.

Drugs

There is reference to getting 'high' in a play on words and speculation that a security guard might be 'on drugs'.

Other issues include blood visible on a bandage after a man stands on a nail, and brief natural nudity as a man runs about naked on a dark roof top, with the low light hiding most of the detail.
