Interview With The Sapphires Star Jessica Mauboy (Video)

The Sapphires' Jessica Mauboy Talks the Movie's "Extraordinary" Real-Life Story — and Sings For Us!

Jessica Mauboy was launched to fame by Australian Idol, but this weekend, she'll make a splash on the big screen in The Sapphires. The movie, which she costars in alongside Bridesmaids and Girls alum Chris O'Dowd, tells the inspiring and harrowing true tale of an Aboriginal girl group in the 1960s who headed overseas to entertain the troops in Vietnam. The movie follows the civil rights movements in both America and Australia with a soundtrack of soul music, and it received a standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival last Summer. Jessica told us being a part of the movie inspired her to research her own Aboriginal background — with life-changing results. Check out our interview, and catch The Sapphires in theaters starting today.
