Winner of four Academy Awards – the most of any film this year – Ang Lee’s ground-breaking and breathtaking motion picture LIFE OF PI returns to theaters for a limited time only this Friday, July 19. Cinema fans who missed the critically acclaimed film on the big screen have one last chance to see it in the way it was meant to be seen.
Suraj Sharma, Irrfan Khan, and Tabu star in LIFE OF PI which was adapted from the best-selling book which was considered unfilmable until Lee took on the daunting challenge. His remarkable efforts resulted in an Oscar win for Best Director this past February. Based partly in India, the film also won Academy Awards for Cinematography, Visual Effects, and Original Score and became a global blockbuster with movie fans everywhere grossing more than $600 million worldwide. It also was honored at the BAFTAs for Cinematography and Visual Effects
and won the Golden Globe for Original Score.
Director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) created a groundbreaking movie event about a young man who survives a disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with another survivor…a fearsome Bengal tiger.
