The Sapphires

 (2012)

The Sapphires Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

The Sapphires is an inspirational tale set in the heady days of the late '60s about a quartet of young, talented singers from a remote Aboriginal mission, discovered and guided by a kind-hearted, soul-loving manager. Plucked from obscurity, the four spirited women with powerhouse voices - called The Sapphires - are given the opportunity to entertain American troops in Vietnam. Catapulted onto the world stage as Australia's answer to the Supremes, their journey of discovery offers them not only the chance to show off their musical skills, but find love and togetherness, experience loss and grow as women.

For more about The Sapphires and the The Sapphires Blu-ray release, see the The Sapphires Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Chris O'Dowd, Jessica Mauboy, Deborah Mailman, Shari Sebbens, Miranda Tapsell
Director: Wayne Blair

The Sapphires Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Sapphires looks fantastic on Blu-ray. Anchor Bay's 1080p transfer appears exceedingly good in all areas. It's vibrant and finely detailed, very crisp and well-defined from start to finish and under every lighting condition. However, the early daytime, sun-drenched exteriors fare best. There's an unmistakable brilliance to the first act; it's incredibly bright but naturally so, displaying a rainbow's worth of exciting colors that are amongst the finest to be seen on Blu-ray. Whether buckets of oranges, green grasses, or a multicolored throw rug, the transfer revels in its tremendously gorgeous palette at every opportunity. Even military fatigue greens and the darker earthen shades seen in Vietnam look amazing. Details, too, are just as exacting. Facial textures are naturally excellent, while clothing lines -- from army fatigues to sparkly dresses -- reveal every last intimate stitch and detail. Image clarity is superb, and there's not a soft corner to be seen anywhere in the film. A light grain overlay helps define a picture-perfect and film-like appearance. Skin textures are spot-on across the wide range of hues seen in the film, and black levels are deep and accurate. There are a couple of instances of very minor banding, but this is otherwise a superior transfer in every regard.


The Sapphires Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Sapphires features a well balanced and natural DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The film opens with some well placed environmental ambience that helps define the country-like atmosphere. It transitions to smooth 60s music beats, not particularly aggressive beats but they're certainly naturally implemented with a strong front stage presence and a gentle surround element. Vocal clarity is excellent, critical in developing the characters and their musical abilities. There's a pure harmony to the singing, not phony engineered elements, and that beautiful sound comes through effortlessly with the lossless audio presentation. The track finds its most aggressive elements in Vietnam. Choppers fly around the stage with natural presence and weight as they rumble from side to side. Distant explosions help define an unsettling sequence, and a larger and closer battle offers well placed and terrifying gunfire, the sound of zooming artillery shells, and hefty explosions defined by generous, but not overwhelming, bass. General dialogue comes through crisply and naturally from the center. In every area this is a top-notch soundtrack from Anchor Bay.
