Ang Lees glorious parable received a whopping eleven Oscar nominations
Based on the best-selling novel by Yann Martel, Life of Pi is a magical adventure story centering on Pi Patel (newcomer Suraj Sharma), the precocious son of a zookeeper. When his family decides to move to Canada, they board a massive, tragically unseaworthy freighter. After the ship capsizes, Pi finds himself adrift in the Pacific Ocean on a 26-foot lifeboat. His co-passengers: a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan and a 450-pound Bengal tiger named Richard Parker. Every single one has only one thing on their mind: survival.
Life of Pi received eleven Academy Award nominations: Best Picture, Best Director (Ang Lee), Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, Best Visual Effects, Best Original Score and Best Original Song.
VFX: Bill Westenhofer, Guillaume Rocheron, Erik-Jan De Boer and Donald R. Elliott
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences commissions a handful of excellent posters for each Oscar nominated film for Best Picture.
