After premiering to a standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival and sweeping this year’s Australian Academy Awards, THE SAPPHIRES finally makes its way to the US. An irresistible crowd–pleaser based on a true story, the film chronicles the journey of Australia’s answer to 60s girl groups like The Supremes — four vivacious Aboriginal sisters who are plucked from obscurity and sent to Vietnam to entertain the troops. A catchy Motown soundtrack and an incredible cast led by BRIDESMAIDS’ Chris O’Dowd and Australian Idol finalist Jessica Mauboy combine in this sparkling comedy with plenty of soul.
