Plot / Synopsis
Control centers on Ian Curtis, the enigmatic lead singer of influential British band Joy Division. The award-winning drama marks the feature film directorial debut of acclaimed photographer and visual artist Anton Corbijn and stars Sam Riley (Ian Curtis), Academy Award nominee Samantha Morton (Deborah Curtist) and Alexandra Maria Lara (Annik Honore).

Ian Curtis has aspirations beyond the trappings of small town life in 1970ís England. Wanting to emulate his musical heroes, such as David Bowie and Iggy Pop, he joins a band, and his musical ambition begins to thrive. Soon though, the everyday fears and emotions, that fuel his music, slowly begin to eat away at him. Married young, with a daughter, he is distracted from his family commitments by a new love and the growing expectations of his band, Joy Division. The strain manifests itself in his health. With epilepsy adding to his guilt and depression, desperation takes hold. Surrendering to the weight on his shoulders, Ianís tortured soul consumes him.
