"Noble" tells the story of Irish children's rights activist Christina Noble and jumps around to different parts of her life including childhood, teenage years, young adulthood, and adulthood to reveal the journey that led to her groundbreaking work in Vietnam where she provided healthcare, education and protection for more than 700,000 children and their families.
The film features three different actresses portraying Noble with Deirdre O'Kane playing the elder Noble, and does a wonderful job of communicating the no nonsense attitude developed by her younger self who never seemed to catch a break.
Noble's alcoholic father couldn't take care of her family so she was sent to a school run by nuns when she was a child. During her teenage years she's gang raped and left pregnant. She delivers the child and the baby was ripped away from her by the nuns who were supposed to be looking out for her. A relationship with an abusive adulterous husband followed, but all these experiences led Noble to make sure other children didn't have to suffer a similar fate. more >>
