Control wins best Screenplay award for New British Film

The List:

"Forget all the other festival awards, there is only one that counted this year and that was The List and The Writers' Guild's Edinburgh Writing Award for Best Screenplay of a New British Film. There were eleven UK films at this year's Edinburgh International Film Festival and contenders for the prize included crowd pleasers like And When Did You Last See Your Father and Hallam Foe, as well as Gallic language film Seachd: The Inaccessible Pinnacle and Scottish comedy My Life as a Bus Stop. Competition was fierce and the decision was not an easy one."

I was lucky enough to read the script for Control. It really got under my skin and stayed with me. Can't wait to see the film.

Can't wait either - massive Joy Division fan and the buzz has been incredible.

In all the buzz I read there was talk of a great script but no mention of the screenwriter. I assumed Anton Corbijn wrote it, as well as directed. "Strange industry" indeed.

the bloke who wrote Burn It wrote it (i loved that) - he wrote that series as a first time writer! YO!
