Open Letters Monthly: Life of Pi

Sorry for the lateness of this one, we had some scheduling issues with my friends over at Open Letters Monthly. Fortunately, things were restructured and sorted and now I have my very own review of Life of Pi sitting in their archives!

When the ship he and his zookeeper family were traveling on sinks to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, young Pi finds himself the sole survivor on the one boat that made it away. At least, he is the sole HUMAN survivor. Also making it to safety is Richard Parker, a fierce Bengali Tiger who means to claim the boat all to himself, and eat anything he can get his claws into, Pi included. As the two wander the endless blue waves, they must learn to accept one another if they have any hope of surviving.

Life of Pi is directed by Ang Lee and stars Suraj Sharma, Irfan Khan, Bollywood star Tabu, Adil Hussain, Gerard Depardieu, and Rafe Spall.
