A vibrant black comedy from NEIL JORDAN, the award-winning director of THE CRYING GAME, INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE, THE END OF THE AFFAIR and THE BUTCHER BOY.
Set in the 1970’s, BREAKFAST ON PLUTO follows the exploits of PATRICK BRADEN, an endearing, witty, clever and deceptively tough young man. Abandoned as a baby in his small Irish hometown and aware from a very early age that he was different, PATRICK survives with the aid of his wit and charm, plus a sweet refusal to let anyone and anything change who he is.
As PATRICK’S penchant for dressing up and his sewing skills develop, he begins his transformation into the beautiful and androgynous KITTEN. With a burning desire to find his mother, he moves to London where an hilarious, memorable and emotional series of misadventures sees KITTEN finally finding the love and happiness he so craves and deserves.
Jordan weaves a wonderfully surreal and magical tale to bring us this funny, moving and poignant rites of passage account of a young man enduring the trials and tribulations he faces with a smile and unwavering faith in the inherent goodness in us all.
Loosely based on Pat McCabe’s best-selling novel of the same name BREAKFAST ON PLUTO is the second writing collaboration between Jordan and McCabe. The film also stars Liam Neeson, Stephen Rea, Brendan Gleeson, Eva Birthistle, Liam Cunningham, Bryan Ferry, Gavin Friday, Ian Hart and Ruth Negga.
