In 1968, 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.
"An exuberant celebration of Aboriginality that fizzes with humor and heart; its soulfulness goes beyond the embrace of a jukebox full of Motown, Stax and Atlantic Records hits."
- Megan Lehmann, The Hollywood Reporter
"The Sapphires isn't flawless, but who cares? It's a joyous affair that's distinguished by its music, and by the buoyant spirit of its stars.."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

Steven Spielberg’s visceral restaging of Normandy earned praise for its battlefield immediacy and honest portrayals of soldiers at war.
"This film embodies ideas. After the immediate experience begins to fade, the implications remain and grow."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A war film that, entirely aware of its genre's conventions, transcends them as it transcends the simplistic moralities that inform its predecessors, to take the high, morally haunting ground."
- Richard Schickel, Time
