Overview

One man's sexual past catches up with him in a very big way in this comedy from director Ken Scott. Forty-something David Wozniak (Patrick Huard) works for his family's meat packing company as a delivery driver; despite the onset of middle age, he's not much on the responsibilities of adulthood, can be counted on to foul up any major task trusted to him, owes $80,000 to loan sharks ready to break his limbs, and he's learned his girlfriend Valerie (Julie LeBreton) is pregnant with his child but doesn't know if she wants him raising the baby. As David ponders the notion of parenthood, he learns he already has children waiting to get to know him. In the 1980s, David was a frequent donor at a local sperm bank, who paid him a fast $35 for each deposit, and now a legal ruling has made it possible for children who resulted from sperm donations to track down their biological fathers. Paul (Antoine Bertrand), a lawyer only moderately more successful than David, informs him that his sperm resulted in the birth of 533 now-adult children, 142 of whom have expressed an interest in meeting him. With a small army looking to him for parental advice, David begins cleaning up his act and tries to become a responsible grown up, but it's anyone's guess if this will impress Valerie or his 142 children. STARBUCK, named for a famous Canadian bull that fathered over two hundred thousand calves, was an official selection at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.

Sight and Sound 12-01-2012 "[Huard] is terrific as the bewildered but big-hearted slacker, and he gets amusing support from Antoine Bertrand..."
Los Angeles Times 03-21-2013 "Scott and co-writer Martin Petit's script is sweet, not bleak."
Total Film 01-01-2013 3 stars out of 5 -- "Ken Scott's finely balanced direction humanises the high concept."
