Starbuck Heading South
By Staff

<The Maiden Danced to Death>

(February 8, 2012 - Toronto, Ontario) The Québec hit comedy Starbuck is heading south, thanks to a distribution deal announced by Toronto-based eOne Entertainment. The Ken Scott film that is a delicate mixture of laughter tinged with some very touching moments of self-realization for its main character is no stranger to US audiences, having screened at festivals in Santa Barbara and Palm Springs.

In a statement released yesterday, David Reckziegel, President of eOne Films North America, said "I've had the privilege of working with Andre Rouleau over the years and we couldn't be more delighted to bring this film to the U.S. This is truly a modern feel-good movie that will be appreciated by audiences worldwide."

Starbuck, which has already come and gone in Canadian theatres and has been seen by countless airline passengers when the in-flight rights were sold last fall, grossed more than $3.5 million in Canada. The Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television has already announced the film will be given the Golden Reel Award at this year's Genies, to be held in Toronto on March 8th. The award recognizes the highest grossing domestic title of the year.

The film stars Patrick Huard as a man who discovers he's the biological father of 533 children. It opened in Quebec last July and played as a Gala presentation at the Toronto film festival in September.
