The Sapphires Sydney premiere on August 8!
13 Jul 2012
Following international triumph at the Cannes International Film Festival and the Opening Night celebration screening at the Melbourne International Film Festival, the much-anticipated film The Sapphires will have a red carpet Sydney premiere at the State Theatre in Sydney on August 8. The screening of The Sapphires will be followed by a special live performance by Jessica Mauboy, who will sing several songs from the soundtrack to the movie, which will hit stores on July 27.
The Sapphires follows four singers from a remote Aboriginal mission, who are discovered by an unlikely talent scout. Australia's answer to The Supremes, the women embark on an opportunity of a lifetime to entertain troops in Vietnam. Their journey offers them not only the chance to show off their musical skills, but find love and togetherness. Inspired by a true story and starring Deborah Mailman, Jessica Mauboy and Chris O'Dowd, The Sapphires combines comedy, heart and romance with unbeatable soul music.
Sony Music will release the irresistible soundtrack to The Sapphires on July 27. The soundtrack (which you can sample here) includes all the songs as featured in the film including some of the biggest hits of the 60's performed by the original artists; Soul Man & Hold On! I'm A Comin' by Sam & Dave and Run Through The Jungle by Creedence Clearwater Revival.
