Winner of the 2008 BAFTA for Most Promising Newcomer. Anton Corbijn's ('A Most Wanted Man', 'The American') debut feature is the beautifully shot biography about Joy Division singer Ian Curtis. Matt Greenhalgh wrote the screenplay based on the book 'Touching from a Distance', written by Curtis' widow Deborah, who co-produced the film. 'Control' follows Ian Curtis' (Sam Riley) life from 1973 to 1980, focusing on his marriage to Deborah (Samantha Morton), the formation and rise of Joy Division, his struggle with epilepsy, and his extramarital affair with Annik (Alexandra Maria Lara), and culminating in his tragic suicide in May 1980. ★★★★ "Effortlessly revives a British cinematic style that you might call beautiful realism" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
