They broke everything but her spirit. They took everything but her dream. NOBLE, the award-winning feature film, is the incredible true story of a fearless Irish heroine driven by her daring vision to escape the slums of Ireland and risk everything on the streets of Vietnam. NOBLE is the Winner of six U. S. film festival awards. NOBLE also stars Deirdre O’Kane (Moone Bay, Paths to Freedom), Brendon Coyle (Downtown Abbey), Sarah Greene (The Guard, The Cripple of Inishmaan) and Liam Cunningham (Clash of the Titans).
As I See It:
Noble is the true story of Irish Civil Rights activist Christina Noble and how limited at first by a three month tourist visa, she worked to save street children in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. Its depiction of events are heart-wrenching. Paternal alcoholism, maternal death, institutional deceit, gang-rape, forced adoption and domestic abuse are shown in flashback. As powerful backstory for her humanitarian efforts, one can only wonder and be inspired.
My Opinion Only:
Irish filmmaker Stephen Bradley’s film Noble is low-budget, foreign, and controversial but make no mistake about it that it is one of the best indie films being screened. The acting of Gloria Cramer Curtis (young Christina), Sarah Greene (teen Christina), and Deidre O’Kane (adult Christina) is solid. Although Noble’s script tastefully scripted with nothing graphic or explicit, it waivers at times. this heart-wrenching story succeeds.
