Celebratory subversion

"Kitten" is one of the most admirable characters ever depicted on-screen.
July 2, 2007
Murphy's turn as the irrepressible Kitten is simply mesmerising - outrageous, tender and full of the sort of deep pain that no amount of make-up can conceal.
June 21, 2007
Another cross-dressing flick from Jordan, but this time with a wry sense of humour and whimsy, coupled with a fine soundtrack of UK bubblegum 70s tunes.

Roaring with real life, Breakfast on Pluto belongs in that treasured subgenre, the gender bending memoir ...Cillian Murphy gives a career high performance as Kitten, so silky, so tough, so completely real that it haunts us.

As played by Murphy in what is an excellent performance, Kitten is sort of like a transvestite superhero--able to overcome impossible situations and look fabulous while doing it.

Breakfast on Pluto's novelistic feel can seem disjointed, but ultimately the structure frees the film to flit from one interesting encounter to another with a minimum of connecting material.

Neil Jordan's Breakfast on Pluto bursts onto the screen ablaze with more color, more ideas, more nerve, more invention and more heart than just about anything imaginable.

January 12, 2006
An offbeat fairytale populated by colorful characters and spot-on performances.
January 12, 2006
It could have easily been 15 minutes shorter. But you can understand why Jordan wanted to spend so much time with such a singular hero (heroine?) as Patrick.

[T]his is one of those crying-on-the-inside comedies, and Cillian Murphy's sublime performance as Patrick is as touching as it is funny...
January 11, 2006
It does one of the best things a movie can do: It makes you feel good.
