REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..jumbled, sketchily written but vastly appealing true-life musical comedy..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]
“..jewel-bright charmer about four spunky indigenous women whose powerhouse voices catapulted them onto the 60s-era world stage as Australia's answer to the Supremes..”
by Megan Lehmann [Hollywood Reporter]
3 of 5

“..glossy and often silly, but it's zippy enough to make the tour worthwhile..”
by Henry Barnes [The Guardian]
3.5 of 5

“..a film with a way of disarming your critical faculties..”
by Sandra Hall [Sydney Morning Herald]
3 of 5

by Nicolas Rapold [NY Times]

SUPREMACY :

“..despite a vein-popping lead performance (and Ms. Olivieri‚Äôs touching take on the classic broken-down moll), "Supremacy" remains stubbornly uninvolving..”

BEAUTIFUL & TWISTED :

“..a lurid yet compelling docudrama..”
by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
