1978. Sid is arrested from the Chelsea Hotel in Manhattan following Nancy’s sudden, tragic death. Dragged to a police station and questioned, he flashes back to how he first met her, an eager American groupie who came to London determined to seduce one of the band.
Falling deeply in love, their mutually destructive, heroin-fuelled relationship tests Sid’s relations with the rest of the Pistols and ultimately leads to a terrible night in the Chelsea Hotel – the exact nature of which is still disputed.
Sid and Nancy is out in cinemas on Friday.
