Sid and Nancy (also known as Sid and Nancy: Love Kills ) is a 1986 British biopic directed by Alex Cox. The film portrays the life of Sid Vicious, bassist of the seminal punk rock band the Sex Pistols. It stars Gary Oldman as Vicious and Chloe Webb as his girlfriend, Nancy Spungen.
The film opens with several police officers dragging Sid Vicious (Gary Oldman) out of the Hotel Chelsea following the death of his girlfriend, Nancy Spungen (Chloe Webb). Vicious is soon driven to a police station and upon arrival is asked to describe what happened.
A few years earlier, Vicious and Johnny Rotten (Andrew Schofield) meet Spungen, a groupie who has come to London to bed The Sex Pistols. Vicious dismisses her at first, but starts dating her after she sells him heroin; it is implied that she introduces him to the drug. The two fall deeply in love, but their self-destructive, drug-fueled relationship frays Vicious' relationship with the rest of the band, which eventually breaks up in the midst of a disastrous American tour.
Vicious attempts to start a solo career with Spungen as his manager, only to be dismissed as a has-been. By now, both he and Spungen are heavily addicted to heroin, and Spungen has spiraled into a deep depression. It ends tragically one night when, during an argument in which Sid announced his plans to get off the heroin addiction and return to England, a suicidal Spungen begs Vicious to kill her; he stabs her in a blind rage, and she dies the next morning.
