Empire - 09/01/2010 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] genuinely touching, funny little film....[It] will remind you just how talented Gervais and Merchant are when they're on home turf."
A.V. Club - 09/18/2010
"CEMETERY JUNCTION is rich in period detail, from the classic-rock soundtrack to the culture-lag that has provincial types still dressing like it's 1955, and it has a burnished look that celebrates the past more than it looks back in anger." -- Grade: B-
Premiere - 08/17/2010 3 stars out of 4 -- "A bittersweet coming-of-age [story]....Filled with great performances from the likes of Ralph Fiennes, Emily Watson, Steve Speirs, and the adorable Felicity Jones."
