Dedicated to Richard Parker

Thursday, December 20, 2012

On Monday night, I had the privilege of attending an advanced screening of the Life of Pi with Nuffnang Australian Bloggers Network, which is due for release in Australian cinemas on New Year's Day.

The Life of Pi, written by Yann Martel, is my all time favourite novel. When I first heard it'd been developed into a feature film, I had doubts.

However, I am far from disappointed with Life of Pi's movie adaptation, it is truly spectacular, and I am sure, has done Yann Martel proud. There are more of my thoughts on the movie published on weekendnotes.

For those that have not read Yann Martel's book, Richard Parker is a lead role, alongside an Indian boy named Pi, in this remarkable tale of survival, love, courage, faith, and adventure on a shipwreck out in the Pacific Ocean. Despite his deceiving name, Richard Parker, is in fact a large, fearsome, handsome Bengal tiger, and is one of the many reasons to go and see this movie, particularly if you do so in 3D.

Here we have a blog post, inspired by Richard Parker in all his Bengal tiger glory.  A lot of what you see here are original pieces from the 1980s, with animal print fashion commonly worn throughout the decade:

Looks impressive - I have never read the book. Would you take a open minded 5 year old? Or it is too adult?

Hi Stephanie, hmm, its a tricky one, there are some scenes which are perhaps a little dark for a younger child. I might be inclined to suggest age 8yr +

Wonderful tiger round-up Erica. The vintage blouses are so special, I esp love the teal and peach one (40's?).
