Want a free ticket to see “The Sapphires”? Read on …
There is so much to love about The Sapphires! After premiering Out-of-Competition at Cannes Film Festival, which was followed by a 10 minute standing ovation, The Sapphires are ready to take over the world!
Inspired by a true story The Sapphires follows four vivacious, young and talented Australian Aboriginal girls from a remote mission, as they learn about love, friendship and war when their all girl group, The Sapphires entertain the U.S. troops in Vietnam in 1968. Gail (Deborah Mailman), Julie (Jessica Mauboy) Cynthia (Miranda Tapsell) and Kay (Shari Sebbens) are discovered by Dave (Chris O’Dowd), a good-humored talent scout with a kind heart, very little rhythm, but a great knowledge of Soul Music. As their manager, Dave books the group their first true gig giving them their first taste of stardom, as they travel to Vietnam to sing for the American troops. On this very tour the girls sing up a storm, dodge bullets… and fall in love.
