To Do Wednesday: Pi Eyed

200px life of pi cover To Do Wednesday: Pi EyedIt’s a slow week, as far as socializing goes—after all, everyone will be spending the holiday, whether in town or a stressful Delta flight away, chowing down on turkey and then in a three-day tryptophan-induced coma. To assuage our loneliness, we’re seeing a new flick (a head start on the manic pre-Oscar-ceremony sprint). Today, Ang Lee’s Life of Pi adaptation opens—the highbrow meeting of a beloved director (we’re still teary over the ending of his Brokeback Mountain) and an acclaimed novel.

Life of Pi opens tomorrow.
