Synopsis / Plot
Alex Coxs riveting biopic tells the bleak, heroin-drenched story of Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious and his disturbed American girlfriend, Nancy Spungen. Gary Oldman delivers a bravura performance as Sid, matched by Chloe Webb’s grating, clearly unhinged Nancy. The two lovers’ childlike tenderness with each other contrasts sharply with their bleak, violent nihilism, and while the script implies that Nancys death was accidental, the line between intention and accident is deliberately blurred. By turns romantic and horrific, SID & NANCY is often grueling to watch, but always compelling.
