Synopsis

The life and untimely death of singer Ian Curtis is the subject of this dramatic biopic that also vividly captures an exciting moment in music history. It's the 1970s and growing up Macclesfield, Ian dreams of becoming a rock star. After witnessing the birth of punk, he joins the band that will evolve into Joy Division. But the road to success goes hand in hand with a deterioration in Ian's marriage and his physical well-being. Despite its tragic conclusion, this film is ultimately a celebration of a great talent and Joy Division's musical legacy. The black-and-white visuals only serve to make the story all the more powerful.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
