ABOUT THE FILM:

Starbuck

Canada | 2011 | 109 min. | 14A

Directed by: Ken Scott
Starring: Patrick Huard, Julie LeBreton, Antoine Bertrand
Language: French with English subtitles
Comedy/Drama

 

Synopsis:

As his girlfriend announces her pregnancy, David Wozniak (Patrick Huard), a forty-something slacker, receives other life-changing news: 142 people, all of them the result of artificial insemination from sperm he donated 21 years earlier, have filed a class action lawsuit against the mysterious “Starbuck,” their biological father.

David’s life is fast falling apart — he’s in trouble with local thugs and owes a lot of money – but his unwitting support network of children, none of whom know who David really is, give him hope to carry on as he visits them in their daily lives.

Full of heart and with tons of laughs, this French Canadian contemporary classic was remade two years later in America under the title of Delivery Man — but with its blockbusting original release, we’d argue you shouldn’t mess with perfect!

 

Awards: 12 Wins, 16 Nominations
