“Control”, the film based on the life of Joy Division‘s Ian Curtis, was previewed in New York last night (September 25), watched by a number of the city’s celebrities.
Dave Gahan and members of Sonic Youth, along with Helena Christensen and Steve Buscemi, all turned up to watch Anton Corbijn‘s long-awaited biopic of Curtis, set for only limited release in America.
Speaking to NME.COM at the premiere, Corbijn said: “I wanted to make sure that Ian was portrayed as normal and so I felt it was important to surround him with an everyday background. A lot of people’s lives are very mundane but a great deal of beauty can come from these kind of environments too and Joy Division‘s music was a great example of this.”
“Control” is released on October 5 in the UK.
