EVENT DETAILS:  The Sapphires (2012) PG-13

This Australian movie is funny, uplifting, and moving.  It also provides a window into a different culture. – Randy

IMDB includes this summary of the movie:

The Sapphires 1968 was the year that changed the world. And for four young Aboriginal sisters from a remote mission this is the year that would change their lives forever. Around the globe, there was protest and revolution in the streets. Indigenous Australians finally secured the right to vote. There were drugs and the shock of a brutal assassination. And there was Vietnam. The sisters, Cynthia, Gail, Julie and Kay are discovered by Dave, a talent scout with a kind heart, very little rhythm but a great knowledge of soul music. Billed as Australia's answer to 'The Supremes', Dave secures the sisters their first true gig, and flies them to Vietnam to sing for the American troops. Based on a true story, THE SAPPHIRES is a triumphant celebration of youthful emotion, family and music. Written by Goalpost Pictures

The Zoom link for the movie showing and discussion is included below.

I look forward to showing this movie and the discussion.
