Trailer: ‘The Sapphires’

Inspired by a true story, “The Sapphires” follows four Australian Aboriginal girls from a remote mission as they learn about love, friendship and war when their all-girl group The Sapphires entertains the U.S. troops in Vietnam in 1968. Cynthia (Miranda Tapsell), Gail (Deborah Mailman), Julie (Jessica Mauboy) and Kay (Shari Sebbens) are discovered by Dave (Chris O’Dowd), a talent scout with a kind heart and very little rhythm but a great knowledge of soul music. Dave books the sisters their first true gig and travels them to Vietnam to sing for the American troops.

Opens March 22 in limited release. Read Variety‘s review by Guy Lodge here.
