Inspired by a true story, The Sapphires follows four vivacious, young and talented Australian aboriginal girls from a remote mission as they learn about love, friendship and war. Singers Cynthia, Gail, Julie and Kay are discovered by Dave, a good-humored talent scout with a kind heart, who gives them their first taste of stardom when their all-girl group entertains the U.S. troops in Vietnam in 1968. See this charming film on Sunday, Dec. 8, at 2 p.m. in the Taylor Little Theatre.
