Sid and Nancy (1986)

The story of Sid Vicious, the bass player of The Sex Pistols, the English punk rock band and his American punk rock groupie girlfriend Nancy Spungen, how they fall in love and become heroin addicts. Two misguided people so completely, desperately in love, that they won’t leave each other, even though they are probably the worst people in the world for each other. This movie doesn’t glamorize drugs but portrays it as a disgusting addiction that can destroy your life. Oldman and Webb are both unforgettable in this moving, heartbreaking, though often funny film despite the subject matter. Starring Gary Oldman, Chloe Webb, David Hayman, Debby Bishop, Andrew Schofield, Xander Berkeley, Perry Benson, Courtney Love 8/10
