The Sapphires (2012), 100 minutes
1968 was the year that changed the world. And for four young Aboriginal sisters from a remote mission this is the year that would change their lives forever. Around the globe, there was protest and revolution in the streets. Indigenous Australians finally secured the right to vote. There were drugs and the shock of a brutal assassination. And there was Vietnam.

The sisters, Cynthia, Gail, Julie and Kay are discovered by Dave, an Irish talent scout with no experience, a kind heart, very little rhythm but a great ear for music. Billed as the Aboriginal answer to ‘The Supremes’, the sisters secure their first true gig, when they are flown to Vietnam to sing soul music for the American troops. Based on a true story, The Sapphires is a triumphant celebration of youthful emotion, family and music. Inspired by a true story, The Sapphires is a triumphant celebration of youth, courage, love, family, and soul music.
