|Comments||Set during the late 60s, this moderate impact film tells the story of three Aboriginal sisters and their cousin Kay who face the racial discrimination of the times in their homeland Australia, and how they use their talented singing voices to overcome much of the confusion, segregation, judgement and loss they have suffered. Themes in this film are complex and mature, despite the ''comedy'' genre and including themes of discrimination, Australian history, family, the Vietnam war, talent and music. Such themes are depicted in a way that includes elements of language, prejudice, and violence which may be harmful for young children. This moive is therefore not suitable for viewers under 13 years of age. It is however a film that contains educational value and a strong message against racial discrimination.|

Dianne de Beer Soul survivors sparkle in dark era.
Peter Travers You could call it an Aussie Dreamgirls. I'd call it a blast of joy and music that struts right into your heart.
C. Fuchs This is a decent offering.
Tomatometer While it's plenty predictable and sentimental, The Sapphires also has an irresistible feel-good vibe, winning music and charming performances to spare.
