Director Ang Lee’s adaptation of Yann Martel’s novel “Life of Pi” is nothing short of magnificent.

When a young man (played brilliantly by Suraj Sharma) survives a disaster at sea, he is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.

The cinematography is beautiful, and it stands out even more so in 3D.  It’s a simple story, really, and told so well.  Utterly original, and deeply moving.  I loved it!
