Set in the 1970s amidst the eruption of British-Irish conflicts, BREAKFAST ON PLUTO is an "enchanting, poignant, picaresque" (Michael Koresky, Interview Magazine) film from Oscar®-winning director Neil Jordan (1993, The Crying Game, Best Writing; The End of an Affair) that stars 2006 Golden Globe®-nominee Cilian Murphy (Batman Begins) and Oscar®-nominee Liam Neeson (1993 Best Actor, Schindler's List). Patrick "Kitten" Braden (Murphy) is abandoned as a baby and left on the doorstep of Father Bernard (Neeson). From a very young age, Patrick realizes he is different from the other boys but steadfastly refuses to change. When he grows up, Patrick decides to go in search of his real mother, who now lives in London. Thus begins a touching and funny journey that will lead him to the most unexpected place of all. "Neil Jordan's colorful yarn...a wonderful roiling comedy...celebrates the power of the imagination" (Stephen Holden, The New York Times).

Breakfast on Pluto may seem a fairy tale at times (no pun intended), but this Kitten has claws.

Like Kitten and everything else about Breakfast on Pluto, it's altogether too overstated and obvio...

[Jordan] successfully grafts two Irish literary modes, snappy social satire and gloomy dirge.
