A new trailer has gone online for The Sapphires.  Based on the play of the same name, the film takes place in 1968 and tells the story of four Australian aboriginal girls who are plucked from obscurity by a talent scout (Chris O’Dowd) and packaged as the answer to The Supremes.  I like the mash-up of cultures in the plot, and it looks like a fun movie with just the right amount of drama.  The movie played at TIFF and Telluride last year, and it could be worth checking out when it theaters next month.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Deborah Mailman, Jessica Mauboy, Shari Sebbens, and Miranda TapsellThe Sapphires opens in limited release on March 22nd.

A new trailer for the comedy The Sapphires has been released.  Based on the play of the same name, the film takes place in 1968 and tells the story of four Australian aboriginal girls who are plucked from obscurity by a talent scout (Chris O’Dowd) and packaged as the answer to The Supremes.  The film actually looks really funny, with a sweet yet commanding performance by Bridesmaids stand-out O’Dowd and promising work from Deborah Mailman, Jessica Mauboy, Shari Sebbens, and Miranda Tapsell as the burgeoning girl group.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  Directed by Wayne Blair, The Sapphires will screen at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival.
