Sing along with the girls from The Sapphires as they entertain the troops in Vietnam;  laugh along to the the irreverent humour of TED, life changes as this group of friends start having babies in Friends with Kids, have a girls night in with Magic Mike and his ‘ripped’ mates and be inspired by Lola’s journey of self-discovery in Lola Versus.

The Sapphires

These girls will sing their way into your heart. The Sapphires follows four young Aboriginal women as they head to 1968 Vietnam to embark on their singing career.  Sisters Gail (Deborah Mailman), Julie (Jessica Mauboy), and Cynthia (Miranda Tapsell) live in rural Australia. A talent competition in the local town fuels their hopes to make a career in singing. Despite the disapproving looks of the pub’s white clientele, the girls take the stage. While their gorgeous singing is ignored by the locals, their talent is not missed by the slightly inebriated talent scout, Dave (Chris O’Dowd).

We gave the movie 4/5, read our review here.

    Crocodile Dundee

  4. marilyn says:

    Priscilla Queen of the Desert, comedy, drama, ABBA music and Guy Pearce, what more did I need back then. Cheeky over the top movie

  5. Beth says:

    I loved red dog, while it was a quirky movie with a different take on reality then most movies, the bond between man and dog is something that almost everyone can relate to. It covered serious issues in a light hearted way that approached the subject gently and wasn’t thrown in your face.

  6. Paul Wallis says:

    Dad and Dave on our selection…

  7. Ines D'Ambrosio says:

    Crocodile Dundee because of memorable lines!

    Spirit of fighting for your rights!
