Yann Martel’s 2001 best-selling novel Life of Pi has been one of the most talked-about books of the past fifteen years, and on Nov. 21 it will be released as a major motion picture directed by Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Sense and Sensibility, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).
The book follows the spiritual journey of an Indian boy named Pi who is left stranded at sea with a Bengal tiger following a shipwreck. A film adaptation has been in the works for years, and now a full, visually-stunning trailer has been released. The film will star Suraj Sharma as Pi and Tobey Maguire as Martel, the book’s Canadian author.
