MOVIE - The Sapphires
This weekend my sister has been staying with my boyfriend and I and last night we decided to stay in for a movie night. Trying to find a film we all hadn't seen was a difficult task though, but we settled on The Sapphires in the end. My boyfriend wasn't convinced to start with but with a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes (his usual source of whether something's worth watching) we hit play.
All in all I thought it was a great film and one that had us smiling to ourselves throughout. Add to that some fab vintage costumes and great soul music - well, you can't go wrong. It also had a lot more substance to it than I thought it might and the characters are all very loveable. It's also inspired by real women in Australia so has some element of truth to it - albeit with a Hollywood spin.
We rented it via Blinkbox because I had 10 free rentals (via PeerIndex PeerPerks - if you are a big social media user register, it's worth it).
Have you watched a great film lately? I'm always after recommendations so drop yours in a comment.
