Cemetery Junction

I won a pair of tickets to the Cemetery Junction playing at the Vancouver Film Festival for tonight. Rickey Gervais directs this film about three friends in the 1970's living in Cemetery Junction, where everyone goes straight from school to work in factories. They spend their days drinking, fighting and chasing after girls. Freddie (Christian Cooke) gets a job as a door to door salesman so he can make something of himself and leave the working-class. He bumps into an old girlfriend and he realizes this isn't the life he wants. His friends also realize they have to change and grow up.

A decent movie to watch, but there were a lot of British humour I didn't understand and sometimes I couldn't understand their accent. Get more information about the Vancouver Film Festival here.
