Peter Travers Video Review: "Control" and "We Own the Night"


Peter Travers says Control, the Ian Curtis biopic (and first feature film by Anton Corbijn) gets everything right and star Sam Riley (who portrays the Joy Division frontman) nails his role. We Own the Night, a cop-family action drama that features Joaquin Phoenix and Mark Wahlberg was booed at Cannes, but Travers maintains it works as an action movie with an emotional core.
