Love can be vicious.
Boy meets girl. Girl gives boy heroin. Boy kills girl. Boy dies too. The passionate and troubled romance between Sex Pistol’s bassist Sid Vicious and groupie turned girlfriend Nancy Spungen is the stuff of rock and roll legend, a tale that casts a long shadow of drug addiction, abuse and industry enabling. Anchored by a pair of powerful performances from Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb, Alex Cox’s SID AND NANCY is one of the best films about the lethal cocktail of sex, drugs and rock and roll ever made.
