Starbuck: movie review

David (Patrick Huard), an irresponsible deliveryman, is nobody’s idea of father material. But when his girlfriend (Julie LeBreton) becomes pregnant, he’s forced to reassess matters—a process complicated by the simultaneous discovery that, as a sperm donor, he’s fathered more than 500 children, some of whom would now like to meet him. The premise of this Quebecois film is as contrived as they come, but director Ken Scott’s ability to navigate from comedy to drama, as well as Huard’s introspective performance, keep Starbuck afloat. What could have been one long, smutty joke ends up turning into a moving slice of midlife.
