The Sapphires in an imperfect, but perfectly entertaining little movie based on a true story of an Aboriginal female soul group that entertained the troupes during the Vietnam war. An unlikely story that probably wouldn't have been written if it wasn't true, the movie features great music and exuberant performances. 92% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Available at Redbox and Netflix streaming. Check it out!
Love & Mercy (2014 - dir. Bill Pohlad). As conceived & written by veteran filmmaker Oren Moverman, the fact-based LOVE & MERCY intercuts two tracks of Brian Wilson’s life. In so doing, LOVE & MERCY achieves the improbable: make a music biopic circa 2015 fresh and interesting. Beach Boys!
