I watched Cemetery Junction the other day and I loved it. I was pleasantly surprised by the heart warming and amusing script as I am normally wary of anything associated with Ricky Gervais. Though, this is in actual fact a really good coming of age film.
The set and soundtrack are great - they show the 1970s through rose-tinted specs. There are hazy, sunlit shots; cool clothes, good music and awesome dancing.
It's about a group of three guys, living in a no-hope town, desperately searching for who they are. They spend their days fighting, drinking and chasing girls. It's all good fun with some fairly deep sentiments that some will certainly cry at.
The tag line of the film; ' Be Young. Be Free. Be Somebody, ' - a sentiment everyone can relate to.
