The Sapphires Synopsis

Inspired by a true story, The Sapphires follows four vivacious, young and talented Australian Aboriginal girls from a remote mission as they learn about love, friendship and war when their all girl group The Sapphires entertains the U.S. troops in Vietnam in 1968. Cynthia (Tapsell), Gail (Mailman), Julie (Mauboy) and Kay (Sebbens) are discovered by Dave (O’Dowd), a good-humored talent scout with a kind heart, very little rhythm but a great knowledge of soul music. As their manager, Dave books the sisters their first true gig giving them their first taste of stardom, and travels them to Vietnam to sing for the American troops.

The film takes place in 1968, and stars Chris O’Dowd (Girls, IT Crowd) as a kind-hearted talent scout who take four Aboriginal sisters from their remote homeland in Australia and takes them on a soul-singing tour of Vietnam, performing for U.S. troops. Though the story will probably tread emotional waters, it still sounds like one of the less-schmaltzy feel-good films in recent memory, and the trailer below conveys that assessment perfectly
