‘Life of Pi’ a Great Story of Hope and Determination

The raves that are greeting Life of Pi are nothing new for the multiple award-winning director Ang Lee, but part of the credit also goes to advances in technology that enable the film’s special effects. Check out KIDS FIRST! critic, Morgan Bertsch’s coverage from the Red Carpet where she interviews Mr. Lee as well as other cast and crew. 

The story is about young Pi who is moving with his family from India to Canada, where his father will sell the animals from the zoo they had in India. The boat on which they are traveling is shipwrecked by a violent storm, and the survivors eventually whittle down to just Pi and a Bengaltiger. Says KIDS FIRST! critic Cheyenne Nguyen, age 9, “The special effect of the tiger is the best part. It seems so real, I thought that the tiger is actually in the boat with Pi.”

KIDS FIRST! critic Brianna Hope Beaton, age 13, adds, “The visual effects are amazing.” Brianna also cautions that very young children may be a little frightened at some of the animal scenes. As Cheyenne says, “It’s too hard to watch the survival of the fittest.” But both rate the film highly. “I love the message and the visual effects. This is a great story of hope and determination,” says Brianna.
