Lone Star Film Festival - The Sapphires
November 11, 2012
220 East Third Street , Fort Worth, TX
Inspired by a true story, this delightful and invigorating film 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, Gail, Julie, and Kay are discovered by Dave (O'Dowd from “The IT Crowd” and Bridesmaids), a good-humored talent scout with a kind heart, very little rhythm, and 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 brings them to Vietnam to sing for the American Troops.
