I had the opportunity to screen the movie “Noble” earlier this week, ahead of its May 8th release in several U.S. cities (see list below). Here are a few of my notes that I jotted down shortly afterwards:
“Noble” triumphs! Powerful! Christina Noble’s angelic spirit shines bright!
Deirdre O’Kane’s remarkable performance is mesmerizing. O’Kane is riveting!
A victory for the human spirit and one’s faith!
“Noble” is a glass full, overflowing with emotion. The film brings hope to the homeless, answers to the faithful. An uplifting, heartfelt true story!
“Noble” is the true story of Christina Noble, a strong, spirited and determined woman who overcomes adversity and poverty on the streets of Ireland growing up. During her youth, she experiences dreams of Vietnam and understands that her life’s calling is in that country. However, in order to fulfill her desire, she must first survive impossible odds and struggles no person should ever endure–particularly a child.
The young, determined Christina Noble fights starvation, the early death of her Mother, and an absent and deadbeat father. Facing fears at nearly every turn, Noble goes to her good place—singing her favorite Doris Day songs to cope. Smartly, she also begins a conversation with God, asking Him why she’s been dealt so much, so early in her life. The answer to that question can only be found in Vietnam.
Arriving in Vietnam near the age of 40, Christina faces opposition from the local authorities as she attempts to improve the plight of the street children in Ho Chi Minh City. Here, the film transforms into a powerful example of how one person can make a difference in the world. An intriguing and provocative story of hope materializes from Noble’s steadfast commitment to her faith in God and the children of Vietnam.
The results of Christina Noble’s faith, determination and refusal to give up when facing adversity, are staggering on paper and live-on even today. Now, go see this film when the movie hits selected theaters on May 8th.
“Noble” is rated PG-13 with a running time of 1 hour and 40 minutes.
On May 8th, “Noble” opens in the following cities:
