Breakfast on Pluto
Film (Also: book)

“Breakfast on Pluto” is a wonderful tale, following the adventures of Patrick “Kitten” Braden (Cillian Murphy! <3) from close-minded small town, via a run-in with the IRA, to London in search of Kitten’s lost mother. Fabulous! With darker parts dotted throughout, but really heart-warming in the end. :)

The film is based on the book with the same title (but I only saw the film; haven’t yet read the book).

There’s also a pretty cool official site (flash only, unfortunately).

    This is one of my absolute favorite movies. There are so many parts that feel like they could be in any “girl with a strange life goes on adventures” story, and then there are parts where the problems Kitten faces are trans specific. I want to give her so many hugs.

    This is one of my favorite movies ever! And Cillian makes a very pretty girl :), so strange to hear him talk in his normal voice now.
