Video: Gervais, Merchant, and Ralph Fiennes Tease Cemetery Junction

It’s Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant‘s directorial debut. According to Gervais, the film tells the story of “a group of 20-somethings in the early 1970s. They work for the building society and they’re having a great time, but it’s about them coming of age and having to grow up.” Ralph Fiennes and Emily Watson star.

Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
