Cheery young transvestite Patrick “Kitten” Braden (Murphy) leaves home and falls in with a rock singer before leaving Ireland to look for his real mother. A variety of unconventional jobs — not to mention trouble — awaits him in the politically-charged climate of 1970s London.
A superficial breeze through an entertaining life story, this has charm and glamour but little profundity. Respect to Murphy for cleaning up as one of the prettiest trannies in recent memory, though (sorry, Chiwetel).
