[7.25/10] The Sapphires (2012)


QuickRating: It's no "Dreamgirls", but "The Sapphires" is an engaging and uplifting based-on-a-true-story Aussie musical, mashed-up with a touch of romance, drama and even action bits, that has a cutting-edge wittiness, strong characterization, and even stronger performances, and stylish retro vibe about it, that makes it as visually appealing, as it's entertaining. Not to mention the singing is beyond impressive, and the musical numbers are a joy to watch, and, of course, listen.

The fact that it is no Dreamgirls makes this a positive in my book. I was not a fan of that film, it was okay, but not the amazing experience so many people call it.

I dunno, I absolutely loved Dreamgirls. The Aussie answer to it is almost on par. It won several awards...
