Christina Noble grew up a poor child in Ireland, but made a tremendous difference as an adult in Vietnam. Losing her mother at a young age, Christina and her siblings were placed in an orphanage when her father couldn’t care for them. As she grew up, Christina continued to face various hardships, but was determined not to give up. While she couldn’t always understand why things were happening to her, she never gave up her faith. Following a dream she had as a young woman, Christina traveled to Vietnam where she struggled to make a difference for the street children. She overcame barriers to aid the children that she was once like. This true story show’s one woman’s determination to make a difference and the vision she created. The stunning setting drives home the gripping tale. Christina’s story is one of inspiration, hope and dedication. The core actors (Deirdre O’Kane, Sarah Greene, Brendan Coyle, Liam Cunningham, and Ruth Negg) do a superb job bringing the story to the screen. Their performances will tug on your heartstrings. Viewers also get a glimpse of the real Christina Noble at the end of the movie. NOBLE is a compelling, heartbreaking, compassionate, inspiring and determined story of a fearless Irish heroine with a human spirit that couldn’t be broken. This moving movie is rated PG-13, but is one the whole family can watch and learn from. FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this DVD was sent to me in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.

Sometimes we simply need to step back from our own personal lives to gain a deeper perspective into what one life can do to make a difference. So many people won't try because they feel their own efforts are simply not enough. Then there comes a person who proves that statement wrong, that one person can make a difference if they are only willing to try. Christina Noble is one such person. In the DVD, NOBLE, based on the true life events of Christina Noble, an Irish woman with a heart like no other, she struggles to find a way to make a difference in the lives of the orphans living in the streets of Vietnam, which she feels God has led her to for some reason. Growing up on the streets herself when her mother dies and leaves her behind in the care of her drunken father and brothers and sisters, the courts intervene and place them in foster care. Christina is separated from those she loves and winds up living in a convent home when child labor is utilized to help meet the needs of the church and community. But Christina has been blessed with a voice she emulates from her idol Doris Day but which others use for their own profit and gain. She flees from the nuns and lives on the streets making her way any way possible until she finds herself a victim of a brutal assault which leaves her forever changed. As she talks with God during her life, she has a vision of going to Vietnam to make a difference, she just never imagined she would flee the slums of Ireland to battle the government of Vietnam to save the children that no one wants. I received NOBLE by Word Films compliments of Edify Media and Word Films for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation, aside from a free copy of this DVD in exchange for my honest personal opinion. While this based on the life of Christina Noble it isn't a documentary but the story of one woman's courage to make a difference that is conveyed in such broad terms by the end of the movie. NOBLE is the winner of six U.S. Film Festival Awards and stars Deidre O'Kane (Moone Bay, Paths to Freedom), Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey), Sarah Greene (The Guard, The Cripple of Inishmaan), and Liam Cunningham (Clash of the Titans). Well worth 5 out of 5 stars! Based on the content on subject matter this is not suitable for young children and teens and viewer discretion is advised.
