I was given a DVD of the Faith-based movie Noble to do a blog review of this movie. I am a little behind on getting it out due to Easter and then recent surgery but here it is.
First let me share with you the synopsis of the movie according to their website, which is the same on the DVD jacket.
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.
The catch phrase for this movie is a dream can change a million lives.
This movie, Noble, has won six film awards.
The setting of this movie is in Vietnam, Ireland and England, most of it in Vietnam. 1955 in Ireland, 1963 in England and 1989 in Vietnam. It does jump back and forth between the years and such.
Noble stars Deirdre O’Kane, Sarah Greene, Brendan Coyle, Liam Cunningham, and Ruth Negga.
A Hollywood reported said this movie was “a joyful and rousing affirmation of the human spirit.” Even Time Magazine’s named Christina Noble “one of the fifty most inspiring people of our time”.
This film is based on a true story. The movie is approximately 1 hour and 41 minutes in length.
There are no Dove awards for this film that I know of. I am unsure of the movie rating either.

My review of Noble
This movie did take awhile for me to get into watching. The story line took awhile to build up, but it also did jump back and forth between what was current and what was past. I know the year ranged from 1955 to 1989. I also know the Vietnam War occurred 1955 to 1975. So she was in Vietnam after the war. But when she was a child growing up the Vietnam War was going on.
Find out about the story of Christina Noble and her dream about Vietnam. Find out her life and struggles growing up. This movie does show Noble talking to God a lot.
I did notice what seemed to be worship of another god in the movie. I did see violence, sex trafficking, applied rape, drinking and more in this video. This video may be more suited for an older more mature child. I do not believe you should show this one to a young child.
It wasn’t until I got half-way through the movie and toward the end that the movie got better.
One thing that stood out to me was one time Noble was talking to God and she said to Him, “I’ll walk, you’ll lead!”. That is true, we must go and allow Him to lead us.
Again, this is based on a true. It was an interesting movie none the less. Something that I might suggest to watch just to raise awareness. The end of the movie shares with us that Christina Noble opened more than 100 projects in Vietnam and Mongolia and has helped over 700,000 children and their families.
