Noble, a film about the inspiring tale of one Irish woman in post-war Vietnam, will screen at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh. Written and directed by Stephen Bradley, it stars Deirdre O’Kane as Christina Noble, an Irish woman whose strength and character allow her to pursue her dream and change the lives of children living in Vietnam. The Irish film has already scooped awards at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and the Boston Irish Film Festival.

Co-starring with Deirdre O’Kane are Brendan Coyle (The Raven, Downton Abbey), Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones, Safe House), Ruth Negga (Marvel’s Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., World War Z), Nhu Quynh Nguyen (Pearls of the Far East, Indochine) and Tony nominated Sarah Greene (The Cripple of Inish Maan, The Guard).

Noble tells the true story of a funny, feisty and courageous Irishwoman, Christina Noble, who overcomes a harsh childhood to find her destiny on the streets of Saigon, fourteen years after the end of the war. The film captures the drama of a life that has culminated in Christina Noble helping almost a million street-children and their families in Vietnam and Mongolia.

Written and Directed by Stephen Bradley (Sweety Barrett), the award-winning NOBLE will open in cinemas across Ireland on 19 September 2014.

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.

Co-starring with Deirdre O’Kane are Brendan Coyle (The Raven, Downton Abbey), Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones, Safe House), Ruth Negga (Marvel’s Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., World War Z), Nhu Quynh Nguyen (Pearls of the Far East, Indochine) and Tony nominated Sarah Greene (The Cripple of Inish Maan, The Guard).
