As late as the 60s, Australian Aboriginals were scorned by many of the white inhabitants. This based-on-fact film is about 4 young women who form the eponymous group (along with manager Chris O’Dowd) and go to Vietnam to entertain the troops. It’s a mostly feel-good story about their mostly fun adventure, but the toll of racial discrimination always hovers. The script is sometimes clunky, but the performances are plucky. I’m a big fan of 60’s soul and this soundtrack is packed with classics. It’s slight-but-sweet.
