NICO, 1988
2018, Magnolia Pictures, 93 min, Italy/Belgium, Dir: Susanna Nicchiarelli

This riveting late-career biopic features a tour de force performance by Trine Dyrholm as famed singer-songwriter Nico, who approaches 50 leading a solitary existence in Manchester, England, far from her glory days as a Warhol superstar and celebrated vocalist for The Velvet Underground. Her life and career on the ropes, Nico is convinced by her new manager, Richard (John Gordon Sinclair), to hit the road again and tour Europe to promote her latest album. Struggling with her demons and the consequences of years of addiction, she longs to rebuild a relationship with the son (Sandor Funtek) whose custody she lost long ago. A brave and uncompromising musician, Nico’s is the story of an artist, a mother and the woman behind the icon. “Dyrholm’s performance is a powerhouse of authenticity. Her moroseness is mesmerizing, but she also gives Nico a tense intelligence, and her singing is uncanny.” - Owen Gleiberman, Variety.
