Movie Review

“The Life of Pie”. This movie is based on the book, with the same title, by Yann Martel. The story is told by Pi, an immigrant from India, to a journalist. He tells of his and his family's life of operating a zoo in India. Because of growing unrest in India, Pi's family and their animals set off to relocate to Canada by ship. The ship goes down en route and sixteen year old Pi is the only survivor left on a lifeboat with a zebra, an orangutan, a hyena and Richard Parker, a 450 pound tiger. This is Pi's story of survival. The movie is visually spectacular and follows the book very closely. The mystery of Richard Parker will leave the movie goers with a lot to think about.
