Synopsis

Gary Oldman (Batman Begins) and Chloe Webb (The Newton Boys) execute performances that are “nothing short of phenomenal” (Los Angeles Times) as Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious and his unforgettable junkie girlfriend – two social misfits who literally love each other to death. In this “riveting biography of burnt-out icons” (The Washington Post), award-winning writer/director Alex Cox* (Repo Man) creates “a great film” (Siskel & Ebert) about the destructive lives of two 1970s punk legends.

Their love affair is one of pure devotion. Sid falls hard for groupie Nancy Spungen, who seduces him with her affection – and addiction to heroin. Their inseparable bond – to each other and their drugs – eventually corrodes the band, sending Sid and Nancy down a dark road of despair. Out of money, hope and options, the despondent two hit rock bottom while living in squalor at New York’s infamous Hotel Chelsea. But their journey takes yet another tragic turn as they face their final curtain – and attempt to fulfill their destiny of going out in a blaze of glory!

Reviews

Variety Staff Variety | April 28, 2008

Sid and Nancy is the definitive pic on the punk phenomenon.

Pat Graham Chicago Reader | April 28, 2008

A few too many moralistic foreshadowings, but most of the time Cox's situations and characters develop on their own eloquently entropic terms.

Janet Maslin New York Times | May 20, 2003

It's not every film maker who credits special thanks to both Luis Bunuel and Dee Dee Ramone, but then Mr. Cox doesn't fit any recognizable mold.

Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times | February 13, 2001

[Cox] and his actors pull off the neat trick of creating a movie full of noise and fury, and telling a meticulous story right in the middle of it.

Rita Kempley Washington Post | January 01, 2000

Though dark and harrowing, explicit and unsparing, the movie proves a riveting biography of these burnt-out icons and their iconoclastic half-decade.
