  • Yann Martel's ponderous adventure novel gets the big-screen treatment with this Fox 2000 adaptation helmed by director Ang Lee. The coming-of-age story surrounds the son of a zookeeper who survives a shipwreck by stowing away on a lifeboat with a zebra, an orangutan, a hyena, and a Bengal tiger by the name of Richard Parker. Suraj Sharma heads up the cast as the young boy, with Grard Depardieu, Adil Hussain, Irrfan Khan, Rafe Spall, and Bollywood actress Tabu also starring.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Ang Lee's adaptation of Yann Martel's mega-selling novel LIFE OF PI is technically adept....The 3D is eye-popping and the film lively with incident..."
    Box Office

    4 stars out of 4 -- "Ang Lee's LIFE OF PI is a miraculous achievement of storytelling and a landmark of visual mastery."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[A]s elegant as it is epic with the director creating a grand adventure so cinematically bold, and a spiritual voyage so quietly profound, that if not for the risk to the castaways, you might wish their passage from India would never end."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Director Ang Lee executes all this with dizzying, overwhelming verve: The shipwreck in particular is a dazzling sequence, particularly traumatic in 3-D..." -- Grade: A-
    A.V. Club

    "Like a lyrical, extravagantly hued childrens pop-up book, LIFE OF PI both draws the audience in and encourages it to settle back, the better to enjoy its virtually nonstop display of daring, wonder and cinematic virtuosity."
    Washington Post
