The Sapphires, which will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month, is based on the true story of how one shady producer (Bridesmaids’ Chris O’Dowd) transformed a struggling female black quartet singing country and western music into a Supremes’ like girl group given the responsibility of entertaining the troops during the Vietnam war.

It looks funny, entertaining, and feel-goody, but not likely to pull down a lot of coin at the box office.
