New Trailer for THE SAPPHIRES Starring Chris O’Dowd

     February 8, 2013

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.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Sapphires:

Gail, Cynthia, Julie and Kay are sexy, black, young and talented and they’ve never set foot outside Australia. Until, in the chaos of 1968, they’re plucked from the obscurity of a remote Aboriginal mission, branded as Australia’s answer to The Supremes, and grasping the chance of a lifetime, dropped into the jungles of Vietnam to entertain the troops.
