Now your going to read other reviews that say that this movie drags on or is not worth the journey, but they are totally wrong. In a world over done with big hollywood blockbusters that just leave you feeling like you wasted $10 (see Fantastic Four) then you'll really enjoy the life and times of Patrick who becomes Patricia "Kitten" Braden, scampering about Europe in the '60s and '70s. The back drop of the movie takes place as Kitten is on a magical journey to find herself. War, violence, and danger are always around every courner but in the magical world of Kitten anything is possible. Kitten is raised by a priesthood and an adopeted mother and sister. His wanting to break out as a women forces him to leave home in search for his biological mother. He takes on a series of odd jobs such as singing in a rock band, working as a magician's assistant, working as a theme park mascot and turning tricks on the stroll. But as he goes on in life and discovers his mother and little brother she truely finds herself and lets go of the past. Cillian Murphy gives a most convincing performance as Kitten. It's a much needed departure from his bad guy roles in Flight Plan and Batman Begins. He is the new Johnny Depp and we can't wait to see what he will do next. We totally see him re-doing the Rocky Horror Picture Show. But as Kitten he gives an amazing perforance and really channels the energy of Hedwig and the Angry Itch. This movie is almost the side/back story to Hedwing in many aspects. But it's worth th trip to the Sunshine Theater to see it.
