Jess, Jenn and Kendyl think that Ang Lee did adaptation right in this episode focused on his film Life of Pi. They also discuss the film’s visual and spiritual aspects and do some more wondering about the truth behind Pi’s story.
Life of Pi, a novel by Yann Martel published in 2001, tells the story of a boy who survives a massive shipwreck and travels around on a small boat with the only other living survivor, a Bengal tiger. The film version, directed by Ang Lee, just released it’s first trailer.
To be released November 21st in the US and December 21st in the UK, the film stars Suraj Sharma, Irrfan Kahn and Tobey Maguire. According to IMDB Maguire is cast as author Yann Martel, so it will be interesting to see how screenwriter David Magee works him in.
Does the trailer make you want to see the film? Or perhaps read the book?
Adaptation will be covering the book and film in upcoming episodes, so stayed tuned!
