Seducing Dr. Lewis is one of my favorite comedies of all-time. It was written by Ken Scott who is now trying his hand at directing and doing pretty well. A massive box office success in Québec, Scott’s comedic Starbuck tracks a likeable middle-aged loser as he wrestles with regret and responsibility. The past is back to haunt him in the form of a class-action lawsuit, launched by 142 of the 533 children who resulted from the 648 sperm donations he deposited over 20 years ago.
The film starts at 7:30 but it's good to get there a little early if possible. I got to see it when it opened the DC Film Festival, I believe last year, and it was very enjoyable. A publicist for the film has contacted us and offered free passes for a showing on Thursday night at E Street. In fairness to her and the club, please accept only if you are pretty sure you can make it. Don't worry about getting on the list before it fills up. We can expand if needed. We would rather you be sure that you can go. Thursdays are busy nights.
After a successful career as a screenwriter and actor working on several titles such as Seducing Doctor Lewis, Ken Scott made his directing debut in 2009 with the film Sticky Fingers. Starbuck, his second feature film has won a lot of critical attention as well as several awards and was the highest grossing Quebecois film in 2011.
