BREAKFAST ON PLUTO
by Niel Jordan, 2005.
"The enchanting and hopeful "Breakfast on Pluto," adapted by Jordan from a novel by Patrick McCabe, has a hero who is a little mad and a little saintly.
This dark comedy stars Cillian Murphy as a transgender foundling searching for love and her long-lost mother in small town Ireland and London in the 1970s. Left on the steps of a priest's rectory and raised by a strict foster mother, Patrick identifies himself as transgendered, renames himself Kitten and sets out for London.
“‘Breakfast on Pluto’ is a delightful fairytale that uses the very real world and its hardships – a long-lost mother, terrorism, abuse – as the theatre for much playfulness and wish-fulfilment.
It is a wild, imaginative and daring project that could equally be dismissed as chaotic and indulgent - or as wild, imaginative and daring. And it’s a hell of a ride…" (Time Out)
