Sid and Nancy

Continuity mistake: Early on Nancy is in a limo and a man with long hair tells her to get drugs. While he's talking his hand goes from resting on his chin to resting on the armrest instantly.

Factual error: When Nancy goes in a car in London to score drugs there is a political poster stating 'Labour Isn't Working'. This poster was used by the Conservative party in the 1979 general election - Nancy was killed 9 months prior to this election.

Factual error: In one scene, Nancy gives Sid his trademark chain/padlock necklace. That item was actually given to him by The Pretenders front woman Crissie Hynde.
