Breakfast On Pluto

Empire
“A superficial breeze through an entertaining life story, this has charm and glamour.”

New York Observer
“Part fable, part fantasy, part shaggy-dog story, with talking robins occasionally serving as narrators, the film exudes an intoxicating sweetness generated by Patrick’s magical affinity for attaching himself to almost everyone he encounters, however grotesque the circumstances of the introduction.”

“This is a quintessentially Irish film, and I can think of no higher praise, particularly in the realm of acting and make-believe generally.”

Premiere
“Playful, poetic, shocking, saddening, and ultimately gratifyingly and honestly big-hearted, Pluto is an apotheosis of sorts for Jordan.” — Glenn Kenny

Roger Ebert
“The movie is like a Dickens novel in which the hero moves through the underskirts of society, encountering one colorful character after another.”

“The enchanting and hopeful “Breakfast on Pluto,” adapted by Jordan from a novel by Patrick McCabe, has a hero who is a little mad and a little saintly.”

Rolling Stone – Peter Travers
“The young Irish actor Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later, Red Eye) lights up the screen in Neil Jordan’s lyrical take on Patrick McCabe’s novel about a 1960s wild child in search of the mother who deserted him.”

“It’s breathless stuff – a whirlwind of colour, wit and imagination that is driven by a tender, nuanced central performance of charisma, wit and intelligence from Cillian Murphy.”

Timeout – Dave Calhoun
“Damn and blast the bleeding boring old real world with its prejudices and its sadness and its violence and its dreary old clothes… Neil Jordan’s latest is the wild and wilfully fictional memoir of an introspective, romantic tranvestite who calls himself ‘Kitten’ (Cillian Murphy). Sweeping us from Ireland to London, from rural backwater to the big smoke, Jordan presents this fast-flowing autobiography of a cross-dressing Dick Whittington in brief chapters that speed easily past the eye and are bolstered by a terrific soundtrack that skips from Cole Porter to T.Rex to Slade to ‘The Wombling Song’. It’s breathless stuff – a whirlwind of colour, wit and imagination that is driven by a tender, nuanced central performance of charisma, wit and intelligence from Cillian Murphy.”
