Globally-renowned photographer and image-maker to superstar bands like Depeche Mode and U2, Anton CorbijnGÇÖs CONTROL tells the story of the tortured love triangle between Joy Division's frontman Ian Curtis, his young wife and his Belgian lover, and the ascension of this seminal British band in the late 1970s. Ian Curtis was only 23 when his rise to fame was tragically cut short. His brief spell in the spotlight was illuminated by an inimitable stage presence and a singular lyrical gift but also by agonising personal conflicts. Strikingly shot in black and white, and considered "the coolest British movie of 2007" CONTROL is the insider's story of the man behind the myth.
