SLIFF - The Sapphires
The Sapphires

Wayne Blair, Australia, 2012, 103 min.

Saturday, Nov. 17, 7 p.m., Hi-Pointe

The year 1968 changed the world. Around the globe, protest and revolution took over the streets. Indigenous Australians finally secured the right to vote. The U.S. absorbed the shock of two brutal assassinations. And the Vietnam War raged. But for four young Aboriginal sisters from a remote mission, 1968's life-altering effects are more personal: It's the year the Sapphires  Cynthia, Gail, Julie and Kay  are discovered by Dave (Chris O'Dowd, "Bridesmaids"). A kind-hearted talent scout who displays very little rhythm but a vast knowledge of soul music, Dave bills the group as Australia's answer to the Supremes, and secures the sisters their first true gig, flying them to Vietnam to sing for the American troops. Based on a true story, "The Sapphires" is a hugely entertaining film with sensational song-and-dance performances  a triumphant celebration of youthful emotion, family, and music. The film was a breakout hit at the 2012 Telluride Film Festival.
