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.
My husband's thoughts:
It started out very slow, but it had a good ending.
Many things in our lives do indeed start very slow. This movie follows the life of Christina Noble, the child of an abusive drunkard father, from the slums of Ireland to the streets of Vietnam. Ms. Noble's story is told in a frame narrative. It begins with her arrival in Vietnam and flashes back to her life in Ireland as a child and as a young adult. The backstory in Ireland is needed to understand her intense passion for the young children she finds living in the streets, in alleys, anywhere they can find to lie their heads. Her passion leads her to fight to find a way to help as many as she can reach.
It's not an easy movie to watch. It stirs my momma heart. I thank God for his servants like Christina Noble who are faithful to the calling he puts in their hearts.
The ending was just as we would like it to be. If only it were so for every child without a father or mother to care for and protect him or her.
Watch the trailer.
I recommend this movie. It is a great way to see just how very blessed we are.
