The infamous Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen

Sid was 19 and Nancy was 18 when they met. Both were junkies. She was a groupie, he was a member of the Sex Pistols, the punk rock legend. From start to end, I barely see them being sober in their true story movie.
Soon after they met, they became inseparable. In an odd codependent way, each provided what the other craved. Besides being enthralled with the sex, he found a mother in bossy her, and she found someone who wanted to be bossed. They were made for each other. Johnny Rotten (his manager) begged him to dump her, but the only person he listened to, was her.

She died in the age of 20, on the bathroom floor in their Chelsea hotel room in NYC with a single stab wound on her abdomen, she bled to her death. In the movie, it was him who stabbed her while they were on drugs and a serious argument. But the truth is, nobody really knew who really did that to her, since he himself forgot if he ever did that to her.

Then he was found dead less than 3 months after her death, heroin OD, in the same room where she died. Few days later, a suicide note was found in the pocket of his jacket, "We made a death pact, and I have to accomplish my part of the deal. Please bury me next to my baby. Please bury me with my leather jacket, jeans and motorcycle boots. Goodbye. With love, Sid."

She was 20 and he was 21, and it happened in real life.
