Neil Jordan, Breakfast on Pluto
An interview with director Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, Interview with a Vampire). Jordan's feature film Breakfast on Pluto follows the exploits of Patrick "Pussy" Braden, an endearing, witty, clever and deceptively tough young transvestite. Patrick flees Ireland for London during the politically tumultuous 1970s on a quest to find love and a place to call home. Abandoned as a baby in his small Irish hometown, Patrick is aware from a very early age that he has been born into the wrong body. He survives this harsh environment with the aid of his wit and charm, plus a sweet refusal to let anyone and anything change his being. His odyssey to self-discovery is a hilarious, memorable and emotional series of misadventures as Patrick, or Kitten as he prefers to be called, journeys in search of love and happiness.
