It's 1968, and four young, talented Australian Aboriginal girls learn about love, friendship and war when their all girl group The Sapphires entertain the US troops in Vietnam.
According to the blurb on the back this film is based upon the play which is based upon a true story. Four young women of aboriginal background love to sing and yearn to be famous. When they sing in a talent quest the catch a man's attention and he helps them train and audition to sing for the troops over in Vietnam.
The singing in this is wonderful and some of the songs are a great deal of fun. This movie has a good mixture ranging from romance to drama to comedy and comes with a lot of heart. It's always a good sign when a movie manages to cover those aspects and cover them well. This is a movie that I would recommend it to anyone who loves good music and great acting.
Overall I think that this is a very well done movie. There were a couple of bits that seemed like it was added in just for the drama, but who knows, real life can be a bit bizarre at times. This is a fun movie and well worth the watch, may even get a few tears rolling.
