Based on the memoir Touching From a Distance, this gorgeous black-and-white biopic tells the story of legendary Manchester band Joy Division and its doomed leader Ian Curtis. The performances are excellent (virtual unknown Sam Riley is Curtis and double Oscar nominee Samatha Morton is his wife, Deborah). Director Anton Corbijn has matched Joy Division's aesthetic, creating a portrait of pain both physical and mental--an image to which Joy Division fans can surely relate. 121 minutes R.
