The Sapphires


Emma and I watched The Sapphires recently and loved it!  What a great story and music.  Deborah Mailman is fantastic as the fiesty Gail, and Jessica Mauboy can certainly sing! 

The original "Sapphires" now

The movie was inspired by a play called The Sapphires written by the son of one of the original Sapphires - a group of indigenous women who tour Vietnam during the Vietnam War to entertain the troops.

If you get a chance, make sure you see The Sapphires - another great Australian movie!

I saw it last Wednesday while I was waiting for the car to be serviced. I loved it too. A good Aussie film. I saw Hyesteria the week before and this week I hope to see A Royal Affair, fingers crossed. x
