Life of Pi

Director Ang Lee’s stunningly visual 2012 version of the Yann Martel novel earned him an Oscar nomination for the film, which also was in the best picture race. A young man (played in his teens by Suraj Sharma) and a Bengal tiger become wary lifeboat mates after a shipwreck, then develop into partners in survival as their unique adventure evolves. Gerard Depardieu and Rafe Spall also appear, but Sharma, Lee and the visual-effects team clearly own the film.
