About the Movie

In 1968, four smart, gutsy young Australian Aboriginal women become unlikely stars by singing for the U.S. troops in Vietnam. With the help of an R&B-loving Irish musician, Dave Lovelace (Chris O'Dowd of BRIDESMAIDS, TV's GIRLS), they transform themselves into a sizzling soul act and set out to make a name for themselves hundreds of miles from home. Inspired by a true story, THE SAPPHIRES is a celebration of music, family, and self-discovery.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Why resist? – Chuck Wilson, Village Voice, Jan 1, 2014

Fresh: The performers improve it, or save it, depending on your viewpoint. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Mar 28, 2013

Fresh: "The Sapphires" illustrates how the same old story - in this case, the one about a 1960s girl group and its struggles - can be freshened up through the novelties of place and characterization. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Mar 28, 2013

Fresh: This charming Australian import has a groove much like other low-key, let's-put-on-a-show indies such as Hear My Song and The Commitments, and never uses its social conscience as simply backbeat. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Jan 1, 2014

Must see

This is an amazing movie and a must see for everyone. It has history, music, laughs, and romance. It has a little adventure.

You will not regret seeing this movie.

Good Business!

Okay, so it got a little trite at the end, but it was surely a fun ride the whole way through. Great cast, not that I knew anything about them before the I watched the movie, but they played their parts well. Great singing though out. It was interesting to see a different cultural take on Soul music from the 60s - 70s (though I am not sure al of the songs sung were out in '68) Specifically "I'll Take You There', which didn't appear until the early 70's but that is a minor quibble at best. It was nice to see/hear the song.

The movie is nice and light, a joy to watch and hear. If you like musicals, I am sure you will watch this movie often. I've already watched it twice, Enjoy!


Complete surprise for us.

Enjoyed the movie on it's own merits and was interested in the fact that it depicted a real historical story from a difficult time period in the 1960's.

Stay with the epilogue and the film credits at the end.
