With director Ang Lee’s new film Life of Pi hitting theaters today, we thought we’d take a look at some other films where animals have been inspirational.

Life of Pi is based on a fantasy adventure novel by Yann Martel. Pi is an Indian boy from Pondicherry, who explores his issues of spirituality and practicality from an early age. He survives 227 days after a shipwreck while stranded on a boat in the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal tiger. This is director Ang Lee’s first film since filming Taking Woodstock and it’s been said to have been a monumental undertaking.

Its visual effects are being hailed as revolutionary and its story beyond inspirational, as Pi and a Bengal tiger have to first learn to simply coexist and end up having to rely upon one another to survive. Because of this, we thought we’d take a look at some other films where animals have inspired us.

‘Free Willy’

Free Willy was released back in 1993, but it’s just as inspirational as it was nearly 20 years ago. The orca (killer whale) was caught in a whaling net and sold to an amusement park with a shady owner.

The films main character, Jesse, is a 12-year-old boy who has been on the streets since he was abandoned by his mother and is ordered to community service where he has to clean the park where Willy is kept. While there, Willy and Jesse become fast friends and together they go on a journey to build themselves back up and learn to trust others. Jesse finds friendship in the unlikeliest place and he begins to heal the wounds left by his destroyed childhood.

One of the most inspirational scenes was when Jesse motions for Willy to jump over the jetty and he jumps to the open ocean to his freedom. While losing his friend, Jesse has now learned to trust others and finally feels at home. Free Willy was also a smash hit in the early ’90s and went on to gross over $150 million at the box office.

‘Seabiscuit’

In 2003 Tobey McGuire starred in a biographical sports drama based on the non-fiction book Seabiscuit: An American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand. The film was based on the story of a horse and a young man (McGuire) who have to learn to be winners again.

McGuire was the jockey that was much too large and Seabiscuit was the horse that didn’t know how small he was – they were a perfect fit. Taking place during the Great Depression, the film had quite a few somber moments. Jeff Bridges starred as a wealthy businessman who loses his family when his son dies in an awful car accident that alternates the course of his life. Bridges meets Red (McGuire) and the two get together to race Seabiscuit.

Red, blind in one eye due to illegal boxing matches he took part in to make enough money to live, was intelligent but very destructive, due to his family abandoning him when he was a young boy. Bridges later meets up with the then unknown Elizabeth Banks, who becomes his love interest. This great cast teamed up to make one hell of a film and instead of them training Seabiscuit to be a winner again, Biscuit ends up teaching them that anyone can succeed if they’re just given a second chance.

‘King Kong’

Peter Jackson had been dreaming of making a King Kong remake even before he started shooting the first Lord of The Rings film, and when word was out that he was doing a remake, fans were ecstatic. Starring Naomi Watts and one big gorilla, we watch the iconic 1933 story unfold as Watts falls for the unlikely beast.

Although this film was a massive 3 hours and 7 minutes long, most would agree it’s well worth it. Ann Darrow (Watts) takes her chances on a shady director (Jack Black) and a rickety ship because she refuses to take the wrong turn in life, despite the curve balls she’s been thrown. She goes on an adventure to see her dream of becoming a film actress and ends up falling for Kong as he protects her from the elements of Skull island.

King Kong is brought to New York and he longs for his blonde beauty, so he breaks away from his shackles and finds Ann. He could have easily made his way away from the city and possibly have lived, but he had to protect Darrow and it sadly results in his death. The lesson learned in this film is that love is always stronger than greed and we’re always too quick to try and make a buck off of one of the world’s biggest wonders.

‘Ratatouille’

Ratatouille (2007) is a movie about a rat. But not just any rat – a rat that loves to cook. The film follows Remy from his humble beginnings where he has a close call with an angry, curler-wearing, shotgun-wielding old lady, to his realization that he lives in France and has ended up near one of the greatest restaurants in all of Paris.

Remy can’t help what he is, and he’s determined not to let that stop him. Sure, he may be a rodent of the generally unclean and feral variety, but he’s not like the rest of his family and friends. He’s got a nose for good food and taste buds that demand the best. But what really sets him apart is his desire and a drive to achieve his goals, no matter how unrealistic they might be.

Remy teaches us that no goal is unachievable. Think you’ve got it tough? Try being a mouse attempting to convince a kitchen full of professional chefs that you want to feed a peasant dish to a famous food critic. That’s tough. Remy inspires us to find any means possible to do what we love, no matter how strange, how crazy, or how improbable it might seem to everyone else.

‘The Chronicles of Narnia’

Aslan is one of the most respected and awe-inspiring creatures in literary and cinematic history. He appears and disappears in the blink of an eye, only stepping forward when his intervention is absolutely necessary. He stays close to the Pevensies in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (2005) because he believes that each of them is important and that each of them will have a hand in finally defeating the White Witch.

Aslan teaches us to believe – in something, anything. Ourselves, each other, him, fate. It doesn’t matter what, as long as we trust in something. As long as we have something worth fighting for. Aslan knew that his life was no more important than anyone else’s.

He was willing to give himself up to save a boy who had betrayed the people of Narnia, simply because it was the right thing to do. Throughout the series, Aslan teaches each of the sons of Adam and daughters of Eve that they have both strengths and weaknesses, and tells them that whichever ones they decide to give into is what defines them.

‘Tarzan’

Tarzan (1999) sees its title character orphaned at an incredibly young age. A sympathetic gorilla take him in and raises her as his own. He befriends a few other animals, but he’s generally viewed as an outcast – especially in the eyes of the silverback that leads the gorilla troop.

Tarzan grows into a man, but doesn’t necessarily grow into his place within the group. He’s still a little strange, a little different, and a little bit of an outsider. This is only put into even more perspective when other humans show up in the jungle, searching for the gorillas, and Tarzan finally meets someone that looks like him. But never once throughout the entire movie does Tarzan’s mother see him as an outsider. He is her son, regardless of species.

She teaches us to be patient and understanding of someone’s differences, and to never judge a person by what’s on the outside. She looks past the physical dissimilarities and sees only Tarzan’s heart, which is no different than her own.

Do you plan on seeing ‘Life of Pi’ this weekend?

Hypable sat down with Transparent‘s Judith Light and Jeffrey Tambor to discuss the life-changing experience of telling one of TV’s most compelling stories.

“You may be laughing at her, but your heart may be breaking too.” This single line from Jeffrey Tambor sums up Amazon Prime’s Transparent. Entering its third season, the break out comedy from writer, director, producer Jill Soloway pulls you into the Pfefferman family and delivers a gut punch straight from the start.

This is nothing new for the streaming series, but somehow you keep going back for more. Season 3, now available on Amazon Prime, is no different. In fact, the first episode alone demands you to pause the auto-play feature and take a deep breathe to process. The entire show is about processing, reflecting, and growing. Actions are quick, mistakes are lofty, but the aftermath, where the processing begins, is where the show lives and thrives.

This is nothing new for the streaming series, but somehow you keep going back for more. Season 3, now available on Amazon Prime, is no different. In fact, the first episode alone demands you to pause the auto-play feature and take a deep breathe to process. The entire show is about processing, reflecting, and growing. Actions are quick, mistakes are lofty, but the aftermath, where the processing begins, is where the show lives and thrives.

Nothing is done for a laugh. Rather the laughs of this “comedy” arrive out of discomfort, the kind of laugh that breaks the silence at an awkward family dinner because your mind and body don’t know what else to do.

transparent season 3

Ahead of Tambor’s second consecutive Emmy win for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, Hypable sat in on a roundtable conversation with Jeffrey Tambor and Judith Light. They both spoke with such care for the show and gratitude for their characters Maura and Shelly. “Maura is not a character you just put down and walk away from. She stays with me and it’s invited,” said Tambor.

The comfort and trust that filled the space between the two actors was palpable. The duo began their careers together over 30 years ago and yet it took Transparent to push them both well beyond their comfort zone with the infamous bath scene from season 2. Slight spoilers for season 2 ahead.

“I went to Jill and told her I was terrified,” Light said. The scene takes place one night in the midst of Maura and Shelly’s cohabitation as the pair are going through their nightly routines. Maura’s transition left Shelly without the one person she felt cosmically bound to and yet here she was in her bathroom. Trying to recapture the sexual spark of their relationship, Maura crosses a personal boundary she didn’t know she created with herself and gave Shelly a fleeting feeling that maybe everything doesn’t have to change.”

In order to create that feeling of intimacy and close in on just Maura and Shelly in that moment, Jill Soloway cleared the entire building, including video village.

“Before we started, [Jill] had us all stand there and take a moment of silence that the scene would be received in the way we wanted to give it. Which was to talk about something that was not talked about forever, as far as I can tell, in the way of mature people and their sexuality,” said Light.

Light, Tambor, and Soloway all wondered how an audience would react to such a scene. Those fears were quickly put to rest as Light explained, “People responded from every generation in the most excited and generous way. We think we know what people want to see and then you have a show like Transparent and you realize they really do want to see that.”

History plays a large role in the Pfefferman family dynamic. Not just the shared history of long nights around the dinner table and cancelled bat mitzvahs, but rather inherited family trauma. Shelly and Maura dive into their personal histories and the history of their shared relationship in season 3, exploring through flashbacks what drew them together.

Season 3 leaves room for a noticeable change in focus, leaning on Shelly finding her voice. While this may be something that will cause viewers to cringe at the mere thought of, it was a shift that Tambor embraced for his counterpart.

“Freedom is very powerful and when it does happen sometimes you don’t know the boundaries… Of course [Shelly] is going to go on Twitter, of course she is going to go on the back of a motorcycle because she is free,” said Tambor.

Light expanded to include, “[Shelly] doesn’t see that everyone is rolling their eyes at her in some way or another, but that is what I think is so powerful about the show and Jill’s brilliance in the show — creating somebody who is very human and very flawed in so many different ways… This is one of those stories where somebody is coming into one of their own their own voice and doing it very clumsily and very badly.”

Freedom to explore her own transformation in light of Maura’s move to pull away from her leads Shelly to give temple talks and explore what her personal rebranding under the handle, “To Shell and Back” could do for her. Tambor continued, “This is a woman who could not make up her mind to what channel her husband would like, so thank God she is on Twitter and making these mistakes.”

transparent light shelly

There is an important conversation both Light and Tambor agree needs to come of the relationship between Shelly and Maura — acceptance of other’s true authentic self, whatever that may mean. Light explained, “Maura has allowed herself to be oppressed by society and live in an oppressive society. It took her 70 years to come out and be her authentic self and it’s something we need to be discussing more because it’s the topic of how we relate to each other or how we relate badly to each other.”

Going forward into season 3, Transparent places Mort and Shelly in pre-transition life where the kids argued over the name of a pet turtle and even further back where Mort, at age 12, began to realize the weight of the struggle that comes with feeling trapped in the wrong body.

Echoing his earlier sentiments about playing Maura, Tambor explained what it was like going back and playing Mort, a task he had not done since season 1. “I found myself saying, ‘I have trouble doing it.’ I felt very actory, but I felt very, very comfortable as Maura… these are not characters you put down at night or during the summer, they stay with you.”

Tambor carries Maura with him every day, opting to wear her ring on his pinkie all year round. “She’s so profound and it’s such a profound change in all of our lives.”

What else can we expect to see in season 3 between Maura and Shelly? Light revealed a takeway about their relationship saying, “They always have their eye on each other. They are always on each other’s radar. I don’t think that is going to go away… When Maura says the things that she does, they either hurt or they remind Shelly of how much love there is between the two of them.”

Transparent seasons 1-3 are now available to stream on Amazon Prime.

But I don’t feel like that now. I feel that as long as the Shire lies behind, safe and comfortable, I shall find wandering more bearable: I shall know that somewhere there is a firm foothold, even if my feet cannot stand there again.”
