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

Customer Reviews

Hey, kids, let's put on a play.

I'm not sure what's worse--the script or the acting--but it's depressing that this kind of mediocrity gets rave reviews.

Just go and rent this, okay?

Great story, great characters, great music. What're you waiting for?

Great, feel-good, crowdpleaser!

I'm really shocked this didn't get a wider push stateside here in America because this Australian film is wonderful in so many ways. First off: (and only because I'm an enormous music nerd) GREAT covers of MOTOWN classics. Secondly: this amazing true story of using your talents for pure enjoyment and not fame, and the importance of family. Do yourself a favor and watch this. Don't worry that it's not available to rent yet. 'Blind buy' it. You'll be glad you did.
