Among the newspapers from around the world with headlines about "Starbuck" is the Israeli daily paper Ha-Aretz. Though the headline and the articles are in Hebrew letters, they are full of mistakes and make absolutely no sense. See more »

Life Is A Stage And Where Else Would You Meet So Many Characters But In Your Own Family
Life is a stage and where else could you meet so many characters but in your own family!
David Wozniack's 539 sperm donor children were as different as Matthew the tax collector and Simon the Zealot at The Last Supper!
I loved them all ...the severely autistic, the prescription drug addict, the unemployed actor, the soccer star, the neurotic, and the gay!
We often learn the most from those who are most unlike ourselves.
The labyrinth of sperm donor children that surround the birth of his first newborn child is heart warming! It feels like agape love much like Quebec film "The Barbarian Invasion"
However, Quebec has a way of romanticizing the trivialization and the minimization of having accountability for actions. (such as the fertility Clinic that donated 500 sperm donor donations under the name Starbuck)
I almost fell in love with this film!
