The Sapphires


1968 was the year that changed the world. And for four young Aboriginal sisters from a remote mission it was 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, a very kind-hearted talent scout with very little rhythm but a great knowledge of soul music. Billed as Australia's answer to The Supremes, Dave secures the sisters their first true gig and flies them to Vietnam to sing for the American troops.

Based on a true story, "The Sapphires" is a triumphant celebration of youthful emotion, family, and music.
