SLIFF: Starbuck

At 42, David lives the life of an irresponsible adolescent. Coasting along with minimal effort, he maintains a complicated relationship with Valerie, a young policewoman. But David’s life is about to become much harder: Just as Valerie tells him she’s pregnant, his astonishingly fertile past resurfaces. Twenty years earlier, he began providing sperm to a clinic in exchange for money, and David now discovers that 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. This entertaining Canadian dramedy – a quirky story about family and what it really means to be a father – exhibits a winningly off-kilter humanity. “Starbuck” won multiple prizes – the Golden Reel Award (for biggest box office), Best Screenplay, and Best Original Song – at Canada’s 2012 Genie Awards. Vince Vaughn (“Wedding Crashers”) stars in the U.S. remake, which will also be directed by Ken Scott.
