This week at the movies: The Sapphires, Argo and For a Good Time, Call 

The Sapphires

Jessica Mauboy and Chris O'Dowd star in this charming musical comedy about a group of aboriginal girls in 1960s Australia who form a soul singing group. Their success brings them all the way to Vietnam, where they perform for soldiers and learn a thing or two about life. Jessica recently performed a track from the film exclusively for 4music.com. Don't miss it! 

The Sapphires is out Wednesday 7 November


Argo

Ben Affleck directs and stars in this thrilling account of one of history's most elaborate rescue missions. When six Americans escape to the Canadian Ambassador's home during the 1979 Iranian hostage situation, a CIA specialist (Ben) comes up with a daring plan to pose as a Canadian film crew. Exiting antics ensue.  


Argo is out Wednesday 7 November


For a Good Time, Call

This raunchy new comedy follows two broke girls who start up an erotic phone line to help pay the bills. With entertaining appearances from Seth Rogen and Justin Long and a kitsch and colourful directorial touch from Jamie Travis, get ready for some guilty giggles.
