It’s time to sing it out loud and put some real soul into it as Dork Shelf and eOne Films want to send five lucky winners in Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, and Victoria pairs of passes to an advance screening of THE SAPPHIRES on Wednesday, March 27th at 7:00pm (7:30 in Ottawa, only).
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 when their all girl group The Sapphires entertains the U.S. troops in Vietnam in 1968. Cynthia (Miranda Tapsell), Gail (Deborah Mailman), Julie (Jessica Mauboy) and Kay (Shari Sebbens) are discovered by Dave (Chris O’Dowd), a good-humored talent scout with a kind heart, very little rhythm but a great knowledge of soul music. As their manager, Dave books the sisters their first true gig giving them their first taste of stardom, and travels them to Vietnam to sing for American troops.
The Sapphires opens in select cities on Friday, April 5th, but here’s how you can get a chance to see it first! Simply email [email protected] with THE SAPPHIRES and YOUR CITY in the subject line. Be sure to include your full name in the email. Please only one entry per household. Multiple entries will be deleted. For additional chances to win, simply like the contest announcement on our Facebook page and/or re-Tweet the announcement from our Twitter! Deadline for entries is 11:59pm on Sunday, March 24th.
Good luck and remember to stay tuned to Dork Shelf for all the latest news, reviews, interviews, features, and even more great contests to come!
