Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Mar 31st at 4:35 for Starbuck at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Eric wearing a gray shirt and blue jeans in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
The French Canadian comedy Starbuck stars Patrick Huard as David Wosniak, a lovable but perpetual screw-up who finally decides to take control of his life. A habitual sperm donor in his youth, this 42-year-old eternal teenager 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-named “Starbuck.” As one might imagine, his life becomes much more complicated than he anticipated-especially when his long-suffering girlfriend (Julie LeBreton) suddenly finds herself pregnant and is understandably reluctant to share parenthood with the unreliable David.
