Eclipse Pictures will release Stephen Bradley’s new Irish drama Noble on DVD on Friday, November 6th.
The film is a biopic of Irish children’s rights campaigner Christina Noble, who in 1989 founded the The Christina Noble Children’s Foundation, an organisation which seeks to help children in Vietnam and Mongolia.
Deirdre O’Kane stars as Noble, with support Sarah Greene, Brendan Coyle, Liam Cunningham, and Ruth Negga. The film is written and directed by Sweety Barrett director Bradley.
Both O’Kane and Greene were rewarded with IFTAs earlier this year for their respective portrayals of Christina Noble.
Vietnam. 1989. Fourteen years after the end of the war. When the funny, feisty and courageous Irish-woman, Christina Noble, flies into Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) she leaves behind an extraordinary life story. But the best is yet to come. Christina lands in a country “that she wouldn’t be able to show you on a map”. With a few dollars, a dream and her own hard-won abilities, she is about to change everything, for hundreds of thousands of people. Shifting between past and present, the film concentrates on Christina’s strength of character, as she uses music and humour to pursue a seemingly impossible dream, always following her motto that “a little insane goes a long way.”
Noble is the inspirational true story of a woman who believes that it only takes one person to make a difference. And of how she is proved right.
