Reviews

Released to much applause. Currently 93% on rottentomatoes

"Packed with laughs, toe-tapping songs and performances as sparkly as the costumes, Wayne Blair's musical is a sure-fire hit" Limelight

"A feelgooder spiced by social conscience" Total Film

"To loveable to miss" Empire Magazine

Synopsis

Based, incredibly, on a true story, and developed from a successful stage musical, this is a big-hearted, barnstorming put-on-a-show crowdpleaser. 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 entertains the U.S. troops.Beneath the spangly exterior, however, it has surprisingly trenchant things to say about Australian identity and the bitter legacy of institutionalised racism. Of course, none of this would really hit home unless we believed in The Sapphires as authentic soul sisters, achieved thanks to ‘Australian Idol’ finalist Jessica Mauboy’s sumptuous lead vocals, and astute song selections from the Motown, Stax and Atlantic songbooks.

    I arrived early, purchased my ticket and went straight into the cinema, the rest of the group arrived soon after.
    The film was really good; the main female characters were feisty and had a strong sense of what family life can be like with some nice days and some difficult ones. However, everyone needs a good support network.
    The group consisted of The Organiser, who was charming and some lovely females, especially May.
    I strongly recommend this group if you are looking for a friendly group of people to watch a film with.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
