Great Move The Best Movie This Year I like to See a 2nd One Come Out Next Year Totally Enjoyable

This is a totally feel-good movie with great music, creative casting and some very thought-provoking cultural underpinnings ... the Australian aboriginy problem, black soldiers in Vietnam, Martin Luther King, Vietnam, etc.. The characters are unique and quite wonderful. I don't understand why this movie isn't getting more press!

The Hollywood Reporter
An exuberant celebration of Aboriginality that fizzes with humor and heart; its soulfulness goes beyond the embrace of a jukebox full of Motown, Stax and Atlantic Records hits. Full Review
Anna Smith
There are undeniable flaws, from cheesy dialogue to neglected subplots. But there’s something so lovable about The Sapphires’ enthusiasm, and powerful about its moments of tenderness. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
A potent combination of rousing music, appealing performances and an uplifting story renders this film-festival favorite nearly impossible to resist. Full Review
Connie Ogle
Miami Herald
This mostly upbeat crowd-pleaser soothes the audience with glistening harmonies and familiar songs and doesn’t always handle the ugly past simmering just below its surface gracefully. Full Review
Eric Kohn
Marred by excessive sentiment, it has a buoyancy and a hook that makes it stand out -- but they're elements that would help it kill on Broadway (as it already has on the Australian stage) a lot better than it does onscreen. Full Review
