Life of Pi
This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.
A man named Pi tells a story that occurred when he was 16. When his family decides to move their zoo from India to Canada, Pi winds up as the only human survivor of the tragic sinking of a cargo ship.
On the sea in a lifeboat, he's accompanied by the other survivors—a zebra with a broken leg, a hyena, a female orangutan and a 450-pound aggressive Bengal tiger named Richard Parker. The hyena eats the zebra and then the orangutan. After the tiger eats the hyena, Pi tries catching fish to feed the tiger so he won't get eaten himself.
When officials from the Maritime department don't believe his story, Pi changes it. This time, he's adrift in a lifeboat with his mother, a sailor with a broken leg, and the ship's cook, who kills the sailor and Pi's mother.
