Starbuck | StarbuckDir: Ken Scott
David has lived his life according to one simple principle: Do as little as possible. A confirmed bachelor now well into his forties he has a girlfriend who is too good for him and a mass of debts but little else. He has no particular skills, his one unique feature being his frequent donations to the local sperm bank. But those swimmers are coming back to him en masse. You see David has fathered over five hundred children, over a hundred of whom are now so desperate to know who their biological father is that they are filing a lawsuit to find out. And if they do he will suddenly have hundreds of claims on his attention and time.
An enormous crowd pleaser writer-director Ken Scott’s STARBUCK is an unexpected gem of a film, one that takes a very silly premise and thanks to a finely crafted script, firm direction and a strong performance from leading man Patrick Huard turns it into something much more than you might expect. A very funny comedy with a surprising amount to say about what it means to be a man Starbuck delivers more than just laughs.
