Breakfast on Pluto's star Cillian Murphy is to be congratulated on his brilliant portrayal of the character Kitten, a delightful and comical character whose story we follow throughout the film. Murphy's acting is simply charming; he really makes the character his own and plays the part magnificently.
Despite the tepid success received by Breakfast on Pluto in the box office, I would actually say to take a chance on the film. The story line is different to be fair, but change is not always a bad thing, and this emotional rollercoaster of a story is one of the most beautiful I have seen in the cinema all year. Kitten, Murphy's character, will one moment have you laughing and the next crying and then the next cringing in your seats before laughing and crying all over again.
I highly recommend this movie to you, and give it 10/10
Ma Braden (Ruth McCabe) curses the day she took the deviant infant in when he was left on the doorstep of a presbytery. Taken in by the parish priest (Liam Neeson) Patrick is raised by the elderly Ma Braden who is infuriated by this wayward and unusual boy. Patrick realizes that anyone who doesn't like the fact that he cross-dresses just can't be his mother. So off he goes to London to search for the mother who deserted him.
The only clue to who she might be is that she bears a striking resemble to Mitzi Gaynor. In his mind's eye, he envisions her in soft blond curls riding on a red trolley car, and she becomes almost a mythical figure to him. Patrick's search is at a time of extreme conflict between the Irish Republican Army and British military and even though Patrick/Kitten abhors violence; he appears chameleon-like during harrowing moments and gets himself in all sorts of terrible situations.
Breakfast on Pluto has a lovely bouncy ebullience - courtesy of a terrific period soundtrack - and the dashes of fantasy are beautifully melded into the film's quirky humor and quick-witted irreverence. But the film is very episodic and a little over-long for this type of material.Read more ›
Despite it being a bit slow in parts (the reason for which I didn't give it 5*s) it follows the life and happenings of Patrick 'Kitten' Brady, a loveable character portrayed by the even more loveable Cillian Murphy.
Who would ever have thought he could play a 'woman' so well!?!
4/5 stars; 9/10!
