May 18, 1980 was a gloomy day for punk fans alike when Ian Curtis took his life. The English band, Joy Division, brought a unique sound that made a strong impact on the punk faction during the late 70s and Ian Curtis will be forever recognized for his key role in that. Although the band went on to become the group New Order after his suicide, CONTROL examines Curtis' personal ups and downs while with Joy Division that made a lasting impression on the music world. CONTROL, a nine time film festival award winner, including three wins earned at the Cannes Film Festival, was directed by acclaimed music photographer Anton Corbijn and loosely based on Curtis' wife's book Touching From A Distance. It stars two-time Academy Awardr nominee Samantha Morton (In America, Minority Report), Alexandra Maria Lara (Downfall) and relative newcomer Sam Riley (24 Hour Party People).
