— Escaping, With Flair, From a World of Ugliness
By STEPHEN HOLDENNOV. 16, 2005

The adage that history repeats itself first as tragedy, then as farce is charmingly illustrated by Neil Jordan's picaresque fairy tale, «Breakfast on Pluto.» Superficially, the movie might be described as «The Crying Game» redux, in which the director revisits his 1992 political thriller with its gender-bending twist. This time, he reimagines its themes as a sprawling comic epic: «Candide» meets «Tom Jones» in drag heaven.

Once again, the Irish troubles rumble through the film, which is set mostly in the 1960's and 70's. But the violence is filtered through the hearts-and-flowers consciousness of a sweet, feminine boy, Patrick Braden (Cillian Murphy), a foundling who grows up to be a transvestite. Even when he is wrongly arrested and interrogated after a bombing in a London disco, his picture splashed across the front pages under the headline «Transvestite Terrorist,» current events barely make a dent in his rose-colored vision of life.

«Breakfast on Pluto» is the second collaboration, following «The Butcher Boy,» between Mr. Jordan and Patrick McCabe, who co-wrote this screen adaptation of his novel with the director. It has a similar zany, lurching momentum and vitality.
