Four young Australian Aboriginal girls love to sing and are spotted at an Outback talent competition by Dave Lovelace (played by Chris O’Dowd, who also starred in Bridesmaids , a likeable if boozy Irish scout who wants to kick-start their careers. The Sapphires are soon shipped over to Saigon, Vietnam, to entertain US troops during the Vietnam War. Sisters Gail (Deborah Mailman), Julie (Jessica Mauboy), Kay (Shari Sebbens) and Cynthia (Miranda Tapsell) become instant hits with the American GIs who love their soul music and their similarity to The Supremes. Based on a true story, the film is directed by Australian Wayne Blair, and is a tale of family, love, war and, of course, great music. Own it now on DVD from Tesco.
