Chris O'Dowd, Sapphires Sing I Heard it Through the Grapevine and Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch at Cannes for Weinstein Co's The Sapphires
Weinstein Co's sent along two videos from Cannes for the film hHelmed by Aboriginal actor and theater director Wayne Blair.
The Sapphires is inspired by a true story and follows four vivacious, young and talented Australian Aboriginal girls from a remote mission as they learn about love, friendship and war when their all girl group The Sapphires entertains the U.S. troops in Vietnam in 1968. Cynthia (Tapsell), Gail (Mailman), Julie (Mauboy) and Kay (Sebbens) are discovered by Dave (O’Dowd), a good-humored talent scout with a kind heart, very little rhythm but a great knowledge of soul music. As their manager, Dave books the sisters their first true gig giving them their first taste of stardom, and travels them to Vietnam to sing for the American troops.
Check out both the videos below.
