Cemetery Junction can be described as sentimental, clever, and stylized. The plot revolves around the working class, twentysomething life, and small town life. The main genres are drama and comedy.

It takes place in the 20th century. Note that it involves profanity.
Playing out against the glamorous backdrop of Reading during the 1970s, Cemetery Junction (a nod to the stretch of road of the same name) focuses on a small group of colourful characters who work for an insurance company. Written, directed and produced by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the film marks the duo's first collaboration for the big screen and features a cast that includes the likes of Ralph Fiennes, Emily Watson, and Gervais himself.
