AN AMERICAN IN PARIS
USA 1951
Jerry (Gene Kelly), a WWII American veteran, tries to make headway as an artist in Paris.  Strangely, he doesn’t willingly succumb to the possible patronage of the lonely heiress Milo because he’s distracted by shop girl Lise (Leslie Caron). Not surprisingly, with a cast like that, the story includes lively music (Gershwin) and superb dancing.    113 min

STARBUCK
Canada 2011
The title was the name of a bull bred to produce many hundreds of thousands of progeny. He didn’t have the same problem as another Starbuck, alias 42 year old slacker David Wozniak, who, as a sperm donor, fathered 533 offspring, many of whom join a class action calling for him to be identified, something he doesn’t want, if only because his girlfriend is pregnant with his child and he is hopelessly in debt.     109 min
