Adapted from Yan Martel's Booker Prize-winning novel, Life of Pi is set in Pondicherry, India and centers on Piscine Molitor Patel (Suraj Sharma) - known as Pi - a well-to-do zookeeper's son who leads a rich life acquiring a broad knowledge of not only the great religious texts but of all literature, and has a great curiosity about how the world works. However, political changes in India cause the Patel family to choose to move to Canada where Pi ultimately finds himself adrift in a lifeboat with a zebra, an orang-utan, a hyena, and a 450-pound Royal Bengal tiger named Richard Parker. The rest of the story chronicles Pi's 227-day voyage across the Pacific, and the powerful story of faith and survival at the heart of Life of Pi.

    Just saw this at the NYFF.

    Prediction: the first 3d film to win the best picture Oscar. It's stunning. Possibly a classic.
