Life of Pi – Movie Review And Giveaway

Life of Pi Movie Review

Have you seen Life of Pi yet? We watched with the kids and it was unanimous in our house – we LOVED Life of Pi.

A “magnificent and moving” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) motion picture event that has been hailed as “a masterpiece” (Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times), taking in over $500 million in worldwide box office.  LIFE OF PI follows Pi Patel, a young man on a fateful voyage who, after a spectacular disaster, is marooned on a lifeboat with the only other survivor, a fearsome 450 lb Bengal Tiger named Richard Parker. Hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery Pi and his majestic companion make an amazing and unexpected connection.

The movie was visually stunning with phenomenal special effects – I had to keep reminding myself that what I was seeing was not real. It’s also very hard to believe that this was Suraj Sharma’s (young Pi) first film – he was glorious and the idea that he basically acted alone for most of the movie is amazing. Reminiscent of Castaway and Tom Hanks but substitute that volleyball Wilson for Richard Parker the tiger. I’m also a huge fan of Irrfan Khan (adult Pi) – I’ve loved him in so many roles and this one is no exception. This Oscar winning film (in Directing, Cinematography, Music and Visual Effects) will take you on an emotional journey where you will laugh and cry and believe. Life of Pi is absolutely an experience – a wonderful movie that everyone will enjoy.

    Would love to win this – hubby has put this movie on the “bucket list” to rent, but I think it’s one we’d watch over and over again.

    I read the book several years ago and wondered then how it would translate into a movie. Ang Lee did a fantastic job and more than I imagined.

  3. Anne Taylor
