Details

From cult director Alex Cox (Straight to Hell, Repo Man, Highway Patrolman), starring Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight, Meantime, Leon)and Chloe Webb (Twins, Ghostbusters 2), Sid & Nancy details the volatile, troubled relationship between Nancy Spungen and punk icon Sid Vicious.

On October 12th, 1978, Nancy Spungen was found stabbed to death in a bathroom at the Chelsea Hotel, New York. Sid Vicious, bassist for The Sex Pistols, was immediately arrested for her murder, and died of a drugs overdose whilst awaiting trial. Alex Cox’s film takes us on a darkly humorous, visually arresting journey that begins with Sid and Nancy’s initial meeting in the late seventies London punk scene and follows their steep decline into nightmarish, drug induced squalor in New York City.

Visceral, unlflinching and ultimately tragic, this is the dark side of sex, drugs and rock’n’roll. 

Also features a brief appearance by a young Courtney Love.
