Trailer: Breakfast on Pluto (2005)
In the 1970s, a young trans woman, Patrick "Kitten" Braden, comes of age by leaving her Irish town for London, in part to look for her mother and in part because her gender identity is beyond the town"s understanding.
"Born the love child of a priest (Liam Neeson ) in a conservative Irish hamlet, transvestite Patrick Braden (Cillian Murphy ) leaves small-town life behind and heads to swinging 1970s London to find the mother who abandoned him years ago. Along the way, Braden -- who's a trouble magnet -- unwittingly takes up with an Irish Republican Army gunrunner. Neil Jordan directs this spirited romp based on Patrick McCabe's roisterous novel." via iamnotatv
Synopsis:A young transwoman, Patrick "Kitten" Braden, comes of age in the 1970s. She leaves her Irish town, in part to look for her mother and in part because her transgender nature is beyond the town's understanding. She's taken in by a rock band, falls for the lead singer, has brushes with the IRA, is arrested by the London police, works in a peep show, and poses as a survey researcher for the phone company. Throughout, her nationality and her nature put her at great risk. In her search for her mother, she makes surprising discoveries of friendship and family. But, will she survive?
