Noble The Story of Humanitarian Christine Noble

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.

I have never been a fan of synopsis. They don't tell enough about the movie and this one doesn't make me want to watch Noble. It is so much more than this.

Noble tells the true life story of Christine Noble an Irish woman who takes on the streets of Vietnam by getting a working Visa and protecting the innocence of abandoned children. It is so much more than that little bit too. We see three different Christina's all played well by amazing actresses. The movie shows us the story of Christina's life and why she is where is she in flashbacks toggling between the present, 17 year old Christina and young Christina played by a young actress by the name of Gloria Cramer Curtis who was amazing!   17 year old Christina is played by Sarah Greene who had me riveted to the screen. Life for young Christina was very hard but 17 year old Christina OMG...her faith is the reason she survived! The heartache and break had me weeping. Deidre O'Lane our current day Christine is Christine! I loved her calm, cool and collected delivery. Wonderful actress, I had to remind myself this was not a documentary but an actress playing a role. 

There is so much going on in this movie and in order to move it along while getting the gist of how Christine got to where she is, I felt some things were rushed or needed to be assumed. What I do know is that Christine had a rough life, alcoholic father, mother died, father gave her and her siblings away. Christine could have gone the way of her father but her faith keeps her balanced and even with all her loss she comes out a hero to so many children who needed someone just like her. Someone who understood and saw them for what they are, children in need NOT vagrants or slaves.

Why haven't I noticed this film before this. My wife MaryLou is a Noble and who knows, maybe a distant Irish relative. Such an inspiring film, as so beautifully reviewed in your post. Can't wait to see it!
