Saph

The story of four young girls who realize their dreams to sing amidst the politics of Australia’s Aboriginal community and the Civil Rights Movement, The Sapphires is generating quite a buzz.

The film described as Australian Dreamgirls tells the story of four indigenous women, Gail (Deborah Mailman), Julie (Jessica Mauboy), Kay (Shari Sebbens) and Cynthia (Miranda Tapsell), who are discovered by a talent scout (Chris O’Dowd), and form a music group called The Sapphires, travelling to Vietnam in 1968 to sing for troops during the war.

This story of family, friendship and racial politics, opens in theaters later this month.
