Here’s our first look at the trailer, movie poster and promo stills from the upcoming Aussie Flick (that I’m very excited about), The Sapphires, starring Jessica Mauboy, Deborah Mailman, Chris O\’Dowd, Shari Sebbens, and Miranda Tapsell as directed by Wayne Blair. The Sapphires is an adaptation of the hugely successful Australian stage musical and inspired by the remarkable true story of writer Tony Briggs\’ mother and her family.
THE SAPPHIRES is set in the heady days of 1968 when four young, talented singers from a remote Aboriginal mission, are discovered by an unlikely talent scout. Plucked from obscurity and branded as Australia\’s answer to The Supremes, The Sapphires grasp the chance of a lifetime when they\’re offered their first real gig – entertaining the troops in Vietnam. For the girls, a whole new world of sex, war, politics and soul opens before them.
Watch the trailer:
Its world premiere is scheduled for a Midnight screening in official selection at Cannes Film Festival with the Australian premiere announced as the opening film of Melbourne International Film Festival on 2 August and in cinema’s August 9th. So excited it’s getting an international outing!
