Alexandra Maria Lara
"A riveting, visually arresting portrait of a tormented soul" Variety.
In 1970s England, troubled musician Ian Curtis (Sam Riley) rises to fame as lead singer of the band Joy Division. A husband and father, Curtis begins to feel the strain of his band’s growing success, as his marriage to wife Deborah (Samantha Morton) crumbles and his epilepsy gets worse. Nominated for two BAFTAs and hailed at Cannes, Anton Corbijn’s CONTROL is a gripping biopic beautifully shot in crisp monochrome.
WINNER: 25 Awards including BAFTA for writing and four awards at Cannes Film Festival.
