Synopsis

Rock photographer Corbijn turns to movies ('shooting with a poet's eye', Rolling Stone) to fictionalise the brief life of Ian Curtis of Joy Division. Based on his widow's memoir, Cannes-award-winning Control brilliantly captures, in black and white, northern Britain in the late 70's, with a superb central performance – including singing – from newcomer Sam Riley, and fine self-effacing support from Samantha Morton. Both the lives and the music are superbly honoured.
