IMDB writes a puny review ("As foster kid Patrick "Kitten" Braden (Murphy) grows up, he leaves behind his small-town life in Ireland for London, where he's reborn as a transvestite cabaret singer in the 1960s and 70s."), but some user named JBmovieguy did a great wrap-up, even if he did spell Ireland wrong in his blurb: "Breakfast on Pluto is the story of a young transvestite from Irland who goes looking for his long lost mother in Scotland during the revolution. He meets many very weird people along the way and runs into many weird situations but no matter how weird the characters and situations are the actors and director/writer never lose sight of the characters and the story. They never allow the huge urge to over do it take over. They make us deeply care for the characters no matter how bizarre they are, no matter how much we would hate to meet them ourselves. It is actually rather amazing and a huge achievement. The performances are completely brilliant, Cillian Murphy in particular is just mind blowing as Kitten the lead. There are also some fantastic performances by Liam Neeson, Stephen Ry, and Brendan Gleeson but it truly is Murphy that will blow you away. His performance is one of cinema's best. He should have won the Oscar. A rather brilliant film."
Totally great movie, especially if you like "Hedwig & The Angry Inch" and "Velvet Goldmine" and have always meshed both movies in your head out of fondness.

*Ewan McGregor and Jonathan Rhys Meyers started making biggie films after their stint in draggish attire, now for Cillian... ?
