Last December, Oscar-winning director Ang Lee brought novelist Yann Martel’s international bestseller Life of Pi to the big screen with magnificent results. Lee’s film tells the magical tale of a young Indian boy adrift on a boat in the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal tiger. Using flashbacks and fantasy sequences, we see the events that led to their epic voyage and the strange events that transpire. To celebrate the film’s home entertainment release, we have TWO Blu-ray copies of Life of Pi to give away, courtesy of 20th Century Fox HE. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Born and raised in India, Piscine Molitor ‘Pi’ Patel (Suraj Sharma) spends his formative years roving around his father’s zoo, fending off bullies at school and devoting himself to a pious life through an holy hat-trick of Hindu, Christian and Muslim worship. When his father decides to sell the menagerie and start a new life with his family in Canada, Pi is ushered onto a doomed Japanese freighter, which consequently sinks during a storm. Cast out into the ocean with only a tiger, a zebra, a hyena and an orangutan for company, the boy’s previously unwavering beliefs are tested to their limits.
