Scripter/director Neil Jordan ("The Crying Game") offers another mix of British-Irish and gender politics. Cillian Murphy stars as Eric "Kitten" Braden, an orphaned, ever-optimistic transvestite in 1960s Northern Ireland whose search for his birth mother leads him to London and lands him in the middle of IRA terrorism, jobs ranging from magician's assistant to streetwalker, and an odyssey of self-discovery. With Stephen Rea, Liam Neeson, Ruth McCabe, Brendan Gleeson. 129 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English, French, Portuguese, Spanish; audio commentary; behind-the-scenes footage.
