Murphy Library film this Thursday is a gem of cinematography!

Posted on: January 7, 2014

When disaster strikes it is good not to be alone, even if your companion growls a lot. The Murphy Library’s movie this Thursday, Life of Pi is director Ang Lee’s cinematic gem of a film about survival on a lifeboat in the middle of the ocean.

It will be shown at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Thursday and is rated PG. Running time is 127 minutes.

An Indian family is moving from their country to the security of Canada during a time of upheaval. They take the animals from their zoo on the voyage to sell later in North America. Then disaster strikes. A violent storm hits the ship and it goes down. The only survivors are the family’s teenage son, Pi and several animals who clamor into a lifeboat. One of them is a Bengal tiger.

Viewers will not only see the incredible cinematography, they will feel it. And — if you want to read the novel, Life of Pi, by Yann Martel, the Murphy Library has that too! Call 837-2417 for details.
