Filmed in black and white, this is based on (the widow of Ian Curtis) Deborah Curtis' book, "Touching From A Distance." The film is a biopic of Joy Division lead singer Ian Curtis. Matt Greenhalgh adapted the screenplay, which covers the last years in Curtis' life, leading up to his suicide on the eve of what was to have been Joy Division's first US tour in 1980. The plot centers on Curtis' struggle between feeling enduring love for his wife and child and his beginning a burgeoning relationship with another woman, as well as his bouts with epilepsy and all-consuming performances with his band. The film marks the feature directorial debut of music video vet Anton Corbijn. Go to the British film page to see stills from the film and learn more about it!
