I attended a preview showing of 'The Sapphires' on Tuesday night at Cinema De Lux, Cabot Circus.
It was fantastic!!
I went with my mum who summed it up as 'an Australian Dreamgirls'.
It does go deeper that that, covering issues from racism and the treatment of Aborigines in 1960s Australia, to the war in Vietnam, and briefly Civil Rights.
The music is just beautiful.
If you like soul music and female comedy this is definitely a film I recommend!
Here's the trailer in case you're interested:
