Canadian novelist Yann Martel’s “Life of Pi” is one of the few novels I’ve started with enthusiasm and but couldn’t finish. I simply failed to connect with this award-winning wrenching fantastical story of loss, adventure and hope. But the movie, directed by award-winning director Ang Lee, promises to be something special. The movie, starring newcomer Suraj Sharma as Pi, hits theaters November 21, 2012.
“Director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) creates a groundbreaking movie event about a young man who survives a tragic disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While marooned on a lifeboat, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with the ship’s only other survivor – a fearsome Bengal tiger.”
This HD iTunes trailer at Apple is even more breathtaking.
