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.
