Derek

Description: This mockumentary-style comedy drama follows a group of outsiders living on the fringe of society. At the group's core is Derek Noakes, a tender, innocent man who works at a retirement home. Derek's love for his job and the people he cares for is evident in everything he does. Derek, who is in his 40s, is vulnerable to being ridiculed and ostracised due to his childlike naivete, lack of intelligence and social awkwardness. Among Derek's co-workers at the retirement home are Dougie, his friend and landlord, and Hannah, Derek's best friend who is smart and hard-working but unlucky in love. Writer-director Ricky Gervais stars in the title role, which is based on a character he created for his stand-up routine.
