I almost scheduled Jurassic Park 3D because there literally is nothing out there interesting!
Anyway, this one caught my eye, sounds like it's had good reviews and Rotten Tomatoes is giving it 93% approval. Looks like it is a bit cliched, but still a feel good movie for a Tuesday night! An Australian production.
****The poster makes the movie look cheesy - watch the trailer, it has some witty dialogue!
For four gorgeous young women from a remote Aboriginal mission, 1968 was the year that changed their lives forever. Sisters Gail, Julie and Cynthia, together with their cousin Kay, are discovered by Dave, a down-on-his-luck Irish musician with attitude, a taste for Irish whiskey and an ear for soul music. Dave steers the girls away from their country & western origins then flies them to the war-zones of South Vietnam, where they sing soul classics for the American Marines. On tour in the Mekong Delta, the girls sing up a storm, dodge bullets… And fall in love. Inspired by a true story, THE SAPPHIRES is a triumphant celebration of youth, courage, love, family and soul music.
Clip of the rehearsal scene. Funny dialogue. My only beef is he's singing I'll Take You There, which was from the 70s, and the movie is set in '68. :)
