Sam Riley as Ian Curtis in Control.View image in fullscreen

Control (Anton Corbijn, 2007), 6am, Sky Cinema Greats

“I no longer have any control.” The short life of Ian Curtis, lead singer of Joy Division, was filled with struggles. Anton Corbijn’s biopic, which was based on his widow Debbie’s book, focuses more on Curtis’s personal life rather than the thriving music scene in Manchester that inspired his influential band. Sam Riley gives a remarkable portrayal of Curtis, who was plagued by epilepsy, a marriage at a young age to Debbie (a phenomenal performance by Samantha Morton), and his feelings for another woman, Annik (played by Alexandra Maria Lara).
