The Breakfast (1998)

Film details


Curly Mulligan is a pupil at a Catholic boarding school, where he is on kitchen duty every morning. One of his most important tasks is to bring breakfast to Brother Ledwige, the headteacher. Since Curly's own breakfast consists of no more than a bowl of porridge, he drools longingly over that of the headteacher. But when Brother Ledwige finds a hair in his breakfast one morning, Curly is for it.
