Trailer Debut: The Sapphires

The trailer for potential break-out Aussie hit The Sapphires has arrived online, following the film’s rapturous reception out of competition at Cannes.

The flick stars Deborah Mailman, Jessica Mauboy, Shari Sebbens and Miranda Tapsell as members of a 1960s Aboriginal girl group who head to Vietnam to entertain the troops. Chris O’Dowd‘s plays their lovable but uncouth manager.


U.S. distributor Harvey Weinstein was reported as declaring The Sapphires his new Artist – his 2011 Cannes acquisition that he carried to a Best Picture winner – though he later said that wasn’t the case.

The Sapphires, directed by Wayne Blair, will open the Melbourne International Film Festival on August 2, 2012. It arrives in Australian cinemas August 9, 2012.
