Story


Patrick Huard stars as David Wozniak, a 42-year old lovable but perpetual screw up who finally decides to take control of his life. A habitual sperm donor in his youth, he discovers that he's the biological father of 533 children, 142 of whom are trying to force the fertility clinic to reveal the true identity of the prolific donor code-name Starbuck.

Produced by Andre Rouleau, the film also stars Julie Le Breton, as David's long suffering girlfriend who suddenly finds herself pregnant and understandably reluctant to share parenthood with the unreliable David, and Antoine Bertrand, David's longtime friend, Paul, an attorney who takes on his case while trying to disabuse him of the joys of parenthood.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Starbuck is unapologetic genre filmmaking with a winning performance from its lead, Huard, a shambling, likeable comedian who can flip, flop and fly off a diving board while maintaining his sex appeal..”
by Stephen Cole [Globe and Mail]
“..Starbuck devolves into a series of heart-to-hearts and, despite its self-consciously contemporary subject matter, reveals a dismayingly retro message: Life has no meaning unless a biological father is front and center..”
by Jon Frosch [Village Voice]
