Comedian Ricky Gervais drew on his memories of growing up in Reading to create the film Cemetery Junction.
The result is a film about 1970s England in which three blue-collar friends spend their days drinking, fighting and chasing girls.
The film was originally titled The Man from the Pru, referring to the Prudential insurance company, which has its UK headquarters in Reading.
However, the company withdrew permission to use this name.
Speaking to BBC South, Gervais said: "Cemetery Junction is an area of Reading near where I grew up in the 70s."
The comedian said the characters in the film were inspired by his mother, father and grandmother, and that his comedy was an "affectionate look" at those people.
