Love Kills. Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb execute performances that are 'nothing short of phenomenal' (Los Angeles Times) as Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious and his unforgettable junkie girlfriend - 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 creates 'a great film' ('Siskel & Ebert') about the destructive lives of two 1970s punk legends.

Their inseparable bond - to each other and their drugs - eventually corrodes the band sending Sid and Nancy down a dark road of despair.

The film follows the turbulent relationship between Sid Vicious (Gary Oldman) and his girlfriend Nancy Spungen (Chloe Webb), following their love affair from their first encounters on the London Punk scene to Spungen's death at her boyfriend's hands in a seedy New York hotel. Director Alex Cox eschews moral judgement in favour of an attempt to show how their attachment to each other was motivated by universal human needs, fashioning a classic romantic love story out of unpromising material. Courtney Love makes a brief appearance.
