The Sapphires

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

For four 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 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.

Starring: Chris O’Dowd, Deborah Mailman, Jessica Mauboy.

Director: Wayne Blair.
