Summary: This came out of the blue - simply spotted it on the neverending string of adverts before the main feature on an earlier film. Took a chance - no regrets. A terrific feel good film which was - surprisingly (uknown to me) - based on a true story. Great soundtrack - no problem with the miming. It looked and sounded terrific with a great all round cast. Recommended for a night in with a glass of wine!
Summary: Brilliant film! I really enjoyed The Sapphires, it's very funny and just a real joy to watch. All of the lead females are great in their roles and have amazing singing voices to match. Chris O'Dowd is fantastic as Dave, and I instantly loved him. It has some deep messages behind it but remains light throughout. Watch it you will not regret it.
Conclusion: A surprisingly enjoyable film considering it wasn't widely marketed. It has romance, drama, music and above all: comedy! Chris O'Dowd is priceless but the rest of them also put in a good performance. We rented it and now I'm coming here to purchase it because I know we'll want to watch it again and again.
