About Breakfast on Pluto

Year Released:
Comedy, Drama

Returning to the boundless imagination of The Butcher Boy novelist Pat McCabe, Neil Jordan recreates Ireland’s turbulent 1970s as an odyssey of gender-bending possibility, courtesy of the irrepressible, cross-dressing Patrick “Kitten” Braden (Cillian Murphy). Abandoned on a doorstep as a baby, an adult Kitten embarks on a quest to find her mother, moving from Northern Ireland to London as she hopes to escape terrorism and prejudice; both, however, prove inescapable as Kitten makes her way through a harsh and exploitative society. Murphy triumphs in the central role with a blend of determined flounce and bruised fragility, holding together a picaresque narrative which ultimately relinquishes momentum for in-the-moment revelation.
