The Indie Film Corner: ‘Starbuck’

The movie “Starbuck” will be presented at USCB Center For the Arts on Monday, July 29 at 7 p.m. The film is written and directed by Ken Scott, co-written by Martin Petit and produced by André Rouleau.

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 Starbucs. A runaway box office success in Canada, “Starbuck” premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. The English language remake rights for this all-too-human comedy were sold to Dreamworks.

Tickets for adults are $7, seniors $6, students $5. Call USCB Center for the Arts box office at 843-521-4145 or purchase day of performance. Box office opens one hour prior to show time.
