The Sapphires @ the Dome Theatre

The Sapphires

TRAILER

 

Inspired by a true story, director Wayne Blair's debut feature The Sapphires follows four Aboriginal Australian girls as they are transformed into a soulful singing group by a kindhearted musician, and later travel to Vietnam to entertain battle-weary U.S. troops. Cynthia (Miranda Tapsell), Gail (Deborah Mailman), Julie (Jessica Mauboy) and Kay (Shari Sebbens) are four singers with lots of passion, but precious little talent. Recognizing something special in the way the girls perform, soulful talent scout Dave (Chris O'Dowd) offers to shape them into a Motown-inspired soul group and get them out on the road. But when their first gig turns out to be on the front lines of Vietnam -- where death has become part of the daily routine -- the ambitious young singers realize they've got their work cut out for them. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Two firsts for me, both enjoyable: first time to an event with this group, and first time to The Dome. To top it off, The Sapphires was an excellent movie - I give it an 8 out of 10.

    Later, at Rubio's, stalwarts Debi, Eric, Lana, and Valentina stayed there the longest, and it was fun chatting with them. We had some good laughs. ^^

    Great movie about a topic that I didn't know anything about. I discovered that the girl playing "Julie" in the movie is the winner of "Australian Idol" so I think that those were their actual voices - they were just lip syncing.

    It was a poignant evening since learning that the Dome will be closing. The realization of that made the experience of seeing a really good movie in a doomed venue sort of emotional. These kinds of films will be missed here in Contra Costa County...so sad.

    Hi folks! Since we have a large turnout today, please check-in with me when you arrive so that I can keep track of everyone. I don't want to leave anyone behind! I'll be there a little earlier than the meeting time too.

    The Sapphires is not at the top of my Must See list, but I've never watched a movie at The Dome before, and I'd like to see a film there before it's too late and the theater perishes!

    April 7, 2013

  • Lana

    Holy crap! 28 people...awesome :) if some of the regulars can help keep an eye out for some of the newbies, that'd be more awesome!! ;-)
