Charts the headlong fall of Pinkie (Sam Riley), a razor-wielding disadvantaged teenager with a religious death wish.
Sam Riley (Pinkie) and Sean Harris (Hale) have portrayed Joy Division lead singer, Ian Curtis. Sam Riley played Curtis in Control (2007), and Sean Harris did so in 24 Hour Party People (2002). This mirrors Dead Man's Shoes (2004) which starred Paddy Considine and Toby Kebbell, both of whom played Joy Division's Manager, Rob Gretton, in 24 Hour Party People (2002) and Control (2007), respectively. Also, it reunites two stars of Control (2007), Riley, and Craig Parkinson, who played Tony Wilson.
When Rose opens the record player, it has a modern British plug on it. In 1960s Britain plug pins were round. Safety switches wall sockets would not have been in place at this time, either.
