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).
Based on Graham Greene’s chilling 1938 novel, BRIGHTON ROCK is the hard-boiled, visually captivating debut film of Rowan Joffe. An official selection of the Toronto International Film Festival, the film features an incredible cast of both British acting royalty and brilliant newcomers. Sam Riley (CONTROL) is the young anti-hero Pinkie, a cunning charmer trying to make his mark on the vicious gangland of Brighton. When a young waitress (Andrea Riseborough, who was nominated for 2 BIFAs for her breakthrough performance) stumbles on evidence that links Pinkie and his gang to a revenge killing, he draws her into a conned romance to keep the loose end tied up. When Rose's world-weary boss (Oscar-winner Helen Mirren) becomes suspicious of the enigmatic young man hanging around her charge, the tangled web becomes a deadly game of psychological cat-and-mouse-- an atmostpheric mystery-noir that fully captures the mood of Greene’s violent and sexually daring masterpiece.
