Yann Martel’s bestselling novel, a parable of faith and belief in which a young Indian boy (an assured debut by Suraj Sharma) finds himself adrift at sea with only a Bengal tiger for company, is brought thrillingly to life by director Ang Lee, cinematographer Claudio Miranda, and a cast and crew par excellence. Even in 2D, it’s a genuinely astonishing feat of cinematic storytelling. In an age of sequels, remakes and cookie-cutter blockbusters, it’s enough to restore your faith in the future of film.
