Life of Pi trailer
Since its publication in 2001, Life of Pi, written by Canadian writer Yann Martel, has been coveted by movie makers across the world. It tells the story of a young man named Pi, who with his family, decide to sell their zoo, and set sail from India to Toronto on a freighter. After a few days at sea, the ship sinks and Pi is the only survivor. To his dismay he must share a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger, a spotted hyena, an injured zebra and an orangutan.
After landing in the hands of numerous directors, Ang Lee was assigned to the project, and his film adaptation of the novel is slated for a November 2012 release date.
I was torn when I first read the book, but quickly found that I couldn’t put it down, and I’m glad that I continued. It’s a fascinating read, and it’s difficult to discuss its content without giving away too many spoilers.
What would you do, if you faced such perilous and treacherous circumstances? How would you cope after the loss of your entire family?
The trailer for the film was released some time ago, and I’m intrigued. I hope you are too.
