The Sapphires Movie

“The simplest way to sell Wayne Blair‘s film debut The Sapphires is to say it is like the point where Dreamgirls and Cool Runnings meet, only with a more explicit socio-cultural message, and played out against the backdrop of the Vietnam War. And all in all it’s a largely undemanding, entertaining affair.”

Sweet and easy, that’s how Simon described the new film about an all-Aboriginal singing group who deal with drama from outside and within when he saw it at Cannes. He liked it, and now that there’s a trailer out, it’s easy to see why.

Check it out for yourself:

The Sapphires is playing the Toronto International Film Festival and is still looking for a US release.
