A YOUNG man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery in Life of Pi, released on Friday at the Showcase in Bargeddie.

Based on the best-selling novel by Yann Martel, director Ang Lee realses his first film in three years featuring Pi Patel (Suraj Sharma), the precocious son of a zoo keeper.

Dwellers in Pondicherry, India, the family decides to move to Canada, hitching a ride on a huge freighter.

After a shipwreck, Pi finds himself adrift in the Pacific Ocean on a 26-foot lifeboat with a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan and a 450-pound Bengal tiger named Richard Parker, all fighting for survival.
