The Government has pledged to build three million extra homes by 2020, but how can this be done without concreting over the countryside?

Momentum Anton Corbijn rewrites the rules of the rock'*'roll biopic by filming the tragic life story of Joy Division's Ian Curtis in black and white, and with a largely unknown cast. Newcomer Sam Riley is uncanny as Curtis, who is left too debilitated by his epilepsy and medication to function both as a moody rock icon and as a faithful husband and father. Samantha Morton plays his wife, Deborah. But as sad as their brief relationship is, 'Control' finds time for twinkling humour and deep tenderness. You don't need any prior interest in Joy Division to be captivated.
