"This is a love story-- an unlikely, perverse, disturbing love story, but a genuine one." - Chicago Tribune

"Once we sense a glimmer of talent and accept these people as human beings, the tragedy of their drug use resonates enormously." - Chicago Tribune

"They are more than zombies doing needlepoint on each other's veins. Both are brought to life in complex, deeply felt performances from two actors who have abandoned themselves to enormously demanding and difficult roles." - Philadelphia Inquirer

Punk rock's first great embodiment of the motto "live fast and die young," Sid Vicious joined The Sex Pistols when they were already established as the most controversial rock band in British history. Sid and Nancy opens shortly after Sid joined the band, when he meets an obnoxious American punk groupie named Nancy Spungen. Before long, Sid and Nancy have fallen in love, and while they argue with uncommon vehemence, they also depend completely on each other. When The Sex Pistols break up, Sid has few prospects and an increasingly voracious appetite for heroin, and Nancy's attempt to "manage" his career only hasten his downhill slide.
