In 1968, four smart, gutsy young Australian Aboriginal women become unlikely stars by singing for the U.S. troops in Vietnam. With the help of an R&B-loving Irish musician (Chris O'Dowd), they transform themselves into a sizzling soul act and set out to make a name for themselves hundreds of miles from home. Inspired by a true story, The Sapphires is a celebration of music, family, and self-discovery.

Excellent storyline. These ladies were way makers for the next generations.I first learned about the Loss Generation from the movie "The rabbit proof fence".What some folks will do in the name of progress is past shameful/barbaric.I hope there has been some change and I also hope one day I am blessed to visit this beautiful country. Peace be with the ladies who made their countryman/woman proud.
Charming story showing that with determination and guts you can find your dreams and then some. The movie details the group of aboriginal women and the past discrimination that they experienced first hand including their community and that success to all.
Loved the music. Race at the front of the storyline
Well done delightful movie. Enjoy
