Breakfast on Pluto
The film is brutal in its presentation of an orphaned boy attempting to live his life as a woman in search of his parents. The film is set in the seventies in Ireland and the sound track will absolutely pull the viewer in if they are familiar with the tunes of that era (as most baby boomers are). It is an in your face drama with a strong dose of camp. There is no discussion of gays, transsexualism, or transgender problems. Rather, the viewer lives their life with Cillian Murphy as he portrays the life of Kitten. The film is tender and painful. It is difficult to understand at times even though the Irish accents are not thick. The viewer will need to pay attention. This is a film that should be recommended to friends and family to help understand the transsexual "condition". ..... for it also displays society's worst in its decedance, revolting hatred of humankind, and to some, the hypocritical views of religious sanctity.
