Starbuck

Canada/French with English subtitles (109 mins)

Western Canada Premiere! At 42, David lives the life of an irresponsible adolescent. He coasts through life with minimal effort and maintains a complicated relationship with Valerie, a young policewoman. Just as she tells him she's pregnant, David's past resurfaces. Twenty years earlier, he began providing sperm to a fertility clinic in exchange for money. He discovers he's the father of 533 children, 142 of whom have filed a class action lawsuit to determine the identity of their biological father, known only by the pseudonym ‘Starbuck’.

Superstar Patrick Huard (Les Boys, Bon Cop Bad Cop) delivers one of the best performances of his career, in writer/director Ken Scott’s highly-anticipated follow-up to the smash hit, Sticky Fingers. The result proves ‘fertile’ ground for a perfect blend of comedy and drama – combining huge laughs with a poignant and insightful look at fatherhood.
