Slightly slow paced at times but none the less, Breakfast on Pluto is a beautiful and fantastic movie. The 1970's backdrop for the movies gives cause for a fabulous soundtrack which I whole heartedly recommend to you, the book which it is based on, however, I don't.

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

It isn't easy being Patrick "Kitten" Braden, an effeminate young boy who likes to dress up in his mother's clothes and pop on some lippy. But he has a wicked sense of humor and a penchant for story telling, and it is these qualities that allow him to cope with growing up in the puritanical Ireland of the 1960's and 70's, where everyone either labels him as different or some kind of harbinger of the devil.

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.

If you want to see a refreshingly funny film with some seriously good acting, then this is it. Cillian Murphy is great, a fabulous performance. I wish more films were made to this standard.

Amazing film. Cillian Murphy shows was a class act he is. His portrayal of Kitten is memorable, not least for a couple of fabulous set pieces. Gotta watch this just for the cavorting wombles ( a nice cameo from Brendon Gleeson here too). The film also blends the realistic with flights of Kitten's fancy. Her secret agent fantasy is played hilariously by Murphy, and he looks too good in a skintight patent jumpsuit. The story follows Patrick Brady's coming of age journey from Ireland to London, in search of his mammy. Along the way he becomes Kitten, encountering a number of questionable love interests, including Gavin Friday, Stephen Frears and Bryan Ferry. We, like Kitten, are plunged into the 70s, navigating the partisan politics of The Troubles and the sugary androgenous pop scene of the time. A surreal mix but ultimately a ride. A brilliant film.

I cannot really describe how amazing this film is. I can only say one or two things. One, it lifts the viewer from a consumer to a person, a political being, as we are all supposed to be at our best. But not in a militant and angry way, even though the character's trauma is there. It's admirable. Second, Farewell to my Concubine used to be my all time favourite, now it comes after this. I am touched and moved and happy. Third place for my all time favourites, or closely with the second one, Das Leben den Anderen. If anything of this sounds familiar, this is a film for you. In my opinion, this is as deep and wonderful as it gets, one occasion of art I'm happy to have witnessed in my lifetime.

one of my favorite all time great coming-of-age stories intertwined with politics on several levels - among men and women, homophobes, and cross dressers, and then there's the IRA - the police take him on and realise he is a sweet man who would not hurt a fly - and, yet, people are threatened by him - the transformation by the end is fully reasonable and natural by the time we get there - i have watched this many times. it is a stunner.

Breakfast On Pluto is a heart-warming, heart-string-tugging, intelligent and funny film.
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!
