Film & Discussion Series: Strange But True
This month's title is The Sapphires starring Chris O’Dowd and Deborah Mailman.
It’s 1968, and four young, talented Australian Aboriginal girls learn about love, friendship and war when their all-girl group “The Sapphires” entertain the US troops in Vietnam. Rated PG-13.
Prior to the screening of the film, we’ll give a brief introduction and note some interesting talking points portrayed in the movie. Brooks Appelbaum, Ph.D. and Dennis Bell moderate. This is the final film in our Strange But True series in which we watched films based on true stories with an odd twist. Let us know what you think of this series and tell us what you’d like to see in the future. Planning for our 2016 series is underway!
