Something for the weekend

Neil Jordan's Breakfast on Pluto comes tearing out of the gate like a pink poodle on speed. Rattling through chapters from Patrick McCabe's novel - all 36 of them, individually captioned - it relates the picaresque adventures of a young Irish transvestite called Kitten (Cillian Murphy), taking us from his rural Irish childhood, dumped on the doorstep of the parish priest (Liam Neeson), to his quest for his mother (Eva Birthistle) between bombings and cabaret shows in glam 1970s London.

I didn't have high expectations for Breakfast on Pluto, but it's a truly wonderful film.
