After a shipwreck leaves him stranded at sea with a Bengal Tiger named Richard Parker, Pi Patel must contemplate faith, acceptance, and existence as he attempts to survive. Years later, a writer asks the adult Pi to tell his story, and memories intertwine with reality. Based on the novel by Yann Martel, Life of Pi is an emotional, physical, and spiritual story of the wonder of life. “Pi is a giant leap forward, outward and upward in expanding the resources of the evolving medium of movies. Magical realism was rarely so magical and never before so real.” (Time) Editor Tim Squyres '81 was nominated for an Oscar for his work, and will join us for the Sunday, March 10 screening.
