This movie gave so much more than expected, a based on a true story tale (????) about a group of for Aboriginal Women and their hapless Irish manager (Chris O’Dowd) who end up touring war torn Vietnam entertaining the troops with some catchy soul music. As well as just having the usual run of the mill, love and adventure this movie tackles racism from a few different angles. American Black, Aboriginal and the place of the stolen generation in Australian society. This was so much better than expected and I expected it to be good. Could be one of my movies of the year.
