Based on a true story, this inspiring and lighthearted comedy is about four Aboriginal Australian women discovered by an ambitious talent scout, Dave (Chris O’Dowd), who aims to transform them into a polished singing group, The Sapphires. Dave, an unlikely Irish soul-brother, molds them into a Motown-inspired group, much like The Supremes. These girls have a whole lot of passion and something special in the way they perform together. But when they learn their first gig is performing for the American troops on the front lines of Vietnam, the girls are quick to realize that, for better or worse, this will change their lives forever. A great combination of music, humor, love, war, friendship, and social issues. [2012, Australia, Runtime: 103 min., Rated PG-13] (trailer)
