The plot: Booze-sodden Irish talent scout Dave discovers Gail McCrae and her sisters Cynthia and Julie singing in a pub talent contest, where the white audience refuses to acknowledge their efforts. Ambitious 17-year-old Julie persuades Dave to put them forward for auditions to entertain the troops in Vietnam. He persuades the girls to recruit their estranged cousin Kay and rechristens the group as The Sapphires.

what the others say

Guardian

"The Sapphires is glossy and often silly, but it's zippy enough to make the tour worthwhile."

Total Film

"A feelgooder spiced by social conscience, this is one of those underdog productions with potential to punch well above its weight. Go on, give it a chance."

Variety

"Soul music's alleged redemptive powers are fully at work in this jumbled, sketchily written but vastly appealing true-life musical comedy."
