Coming this Season: Breakfast on Pluto

    The quirky comedy “Breakfast on Pluto” focuses on the trials of an Irish man, Patrick “Kitten” Braden (Irish pretty boy Cillian Murphy), who travels to glamorous 1970s London to perform on stage as a transvestite cabaret singer. The young lad approaches clothes, gender, religion, terrorism and abandonment with charm and wit, relentlessly adopting an optimistic outlook despite having to endure disaster and tragedy. Rising star Murphy, who is great at being sinister, finally gets a chance to apply his talent to a heroic role more akin to his competent work in the overlooked gem “Intermission.” The rest of the cast features experienced actors, including Liam Neeson, Brendan Gleeson and Stephen Rea. In a season often sated with darker fare, “Breakfast on Pluto” is a conspicuously atypical coming-of-age story, and under the direction of Neil Jordan (the mastermind behind “Interview with a Vampire” and “The Crying Game”), it promises to be both entertaining and substantial.
