“The Sapphires” is one of the most charming films to come out of Australia in a long time. It takes the term “feel good” and wraps you around its little finger, takes you for a beer, breaks into song, pays for dinner then buys you a puppy on the way home. It is that charming.
Based on the true story of four young, talented Aboriginal girls in the Sixties, “The Sapphires”, starring Chris O’Dowd, Deborah Mailman, newcomers Shari Sebens, Miranda Tapsell and Australian pop singer Jessica Mauboy, follows the all-girl group from Country and Western classics in an “unfriendly” outback pub to soul singing stars to the troops during the Vietnam War.
While the film is clunky in parts, and in the beginning you’re not quite sure if it’s going to stay within the boundaries of quirky yet amusing or cross over to embarrassingly cheesy and stereotypical, this worry is quickly settled as soon as Chris O’Dowd steps onto the screen. Read Full Review…
