* CloudCuckooLander: Kitten. She often behaves quite bizarrely and has an extremely unique take on the world, building up an elaborate pseudo-mythology around herself. At times, she seems to genuinely believe she’s living a fairy tale (to the point of full-blown SanitySlippage) but there are moments when she shows real insight into her situation and basically admits that she clings to her fantasies because the truth is too painful:

* DeadpanSnarker: Charlie. Also Kitten at times, who somehow manages to combine this with elements of TheCutie, the CloudCuckooLander and ThePollyanna.
* DoorstopBaby: Kitten was left on Father Liam’s doorstep as a baby, and was sent to live with an [[WickedStepMother unloving foster mother]], Ma Braden.

* GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion: Charlie travels to London to have an abortion. Kitten accompanies Charlie to the clinic, assuring her that she's making the right decision, fearing the child might end up a "disaster" like [[CloudCuckoolander Kitten]] [[WholesomeCrossdresser herself]]. Charlie decides against it at the last second-[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming turns out she wouldn't mind at all if the child ended up like Kitten]].

* TooDumbToLive: Kitten at certain moments, though she often has little choice but to wander into life-threatening situations. Still, her sudden decision to throw Billy Hatchett’s guns in the lake was ''obviously'' going to have dire consequences. Then again, she was extremely upset at the time [[spoiler: due to Lawrence’s death]]. Plus [[CloudCuckooLander she doesn't ever really seem to quite follow the same logic as the rest of the world.]]

* TheDanza: Liam Neeson as "Randy Father Liam". Presumably this was done on purpose, as the character from the novel was actually named Father Bernard.
* DawsonCasting: Cillian Murphy was about thirty when he played the teenage Patrick/Kitten. Admittedly the film spans several years, so the age discrepancy isn’t quite so bad by the end of the movie. Plus he ''looked'' a good deal younger than he was. But he is still only two years younger than the actress who plays his biological mother!

* UsefulNotes/NorthernIreland: the first half of the movie takes place just across the border from here. Several characters (Erwin, Billy Hatchet, ThoseTwoBadGuys) are IRA members who seem to be using the place as a safe haven.

* TheUnfavourite: Ma Braden blatantly prefers Kitten’s “sister”, Caroline. Possibly because she adheres to conventional gender roles.
