clips and trailers: The Sapphires (2012)

No Comment

Starring Ireland’s very own Chris O’Dowd, The Sapphires tells the tale of four aboriginal girls who became Australia’s answer to The Supremes.

The film is inspired on the true story of The Sapphires, an all girl band formed in the late ’60s. The writer Tony Briggs based his original play on the experiences of his mother and aunt and their friends, who formed an all aboriginal girl group that eventually toured Vietnam singing to troops during the war.

In this version Chris O’Dowd plays an Irish musician who catches the earful of the girls’ singing country and western at an outback talent competition. The late ’60s were a time of war, and the fight for the rights of the indigenous people of Australia was only just beginning but knows he’s just heard something special and they thing he’s the man who can take them to the top. It’s not going to be an easy ride, but sometimes the journey is half the fun.
