Sixteen-year-old Pi and Richard Parker, a Bengal tiger, are sole survivors of a shipwreck. They share a small lifeboat adrift in the Pacific Ocean. However, their sea-bound predicament is just the beginning of their journey together. Ang Lee’s adaptation of Yann Martel’s ‘unfilmable’ bestseller deservedly won Oscars for direction, cinematography, visual effects and an evocative score. It’s a breathtaking adventure, from the battle of wits between the boy and his furry nemesis to some incredible underwater sequences.

‘This is my favourite film. It’s also one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen.’
