The bi-weekly film series at Greens N Grains Deli presents an Irish comedy on Thursday, January 21 at 7 pm.
Directed by Neil Jordan and based on the novel of the same name by Patrick McCabe, Breakfast on Pluto stars Cillian Murphy as Patrick “Kitten” Braden, a transgender orphan searching for love and her long-lost mother in small town Ireland and London in the 1970s.
To prepare for the lead role of Kitten, Cillian Murphy studied women’s body language and for a few weeks met with a drag queen that instructed him and took him out clubbing with friends. Cillian Murphy won the 2007 IFTA Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Kitten and was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. Neil Jordan also won the 2007 IFTA for Best Director and Jordan and McCabe took home the Best Script IFTA.
The film will be shown in the loft above the Deli at Greens N Grains grocery in downtown Egg Harbor and screenings are free – however, the seating is limited to 30 persons. You may make a seating reservation by calling 920.868.9999 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The $6.50 natural and organic dinner special; soup, salad, a fresh baked roll and tea will feature another tasty example of the Deli’s specialties,” says Kathy Navis, store owner. “We start serving at 6 pm with the film screening at 7 pm. The dinner special is available to anyone without reservations, but our film seating is limited.”
