Life of Pi
Based on the best-selling novel by Yann Martel, director Ang Lee ("Brokeback Mountain") mixing real animals with computer-generated 3D effects, taking us on a journey to a fantastic place where millions of meerkats scamper around glittering pools of freshwater until at night, a great and dangerous transformation takes place while they snuggle on the tree branches to sleep. 
The family of a 17-year-old Indian boy named Pi  (Suraj Sharma) have decided to move their family zoo to Canada. But the Japanese freighter containing Pi’s family and their zoo animals are caught in a catastrophic storm, Pi miraculously escapes on a lifeboat where a wounded zebra, a hyena, an orangutan, and a Bengal tiger vie for precious space. After the boat’s incompatible passengers are whittled down to Pi and the tiger, who Pi names Richard Parker.

For 227 days, Pi endures an odyssey of subsistence with the wild, beautiful animal. Every strand of Pi’s mental and physical fortitude is stretched far beyond its limit. Pi must not only build a separate raft to keep a safe distance from the tiger, but he must also strategize about how to provide for himself and the deadly cat. This helps focus his mind.

Director Ang Lee orchestrates the demanding visual, emotional, and thematic elements of Life of Pi like a maestro with a carefully honed sense of dynamics. The film’s overall effect is an incredibly rich cinematic experience incomparable to anything you've ever seen in a movie.
