NICO, 1988 follows the singer-songwriter, approaching 50, leading a solitary existence in Manchester, far from her 60s glam days as a Warhol superstar and celebrated vocalist for cult band The Velvet Underground. Her life and career on the fringes, Nico’s new manager Richard convinces her to hit the road again and tour Europe to promote her latest album. Struggling with her demons and the consequences of a muddled life, she longs to rebuild a relationship with her son, whose custody she lost long ago. A brave and uncompromising musician, Nico’s story is the story of a rebirth: of an artist, a mother, and the woman behind the icon.
“CRITICS PICK. BRILLIANTLY UNSENTIMENTAL. Dyrholm, fantastic, fully captures the faded charisma of the woman whose life reads like a Who’s Who of the New York midcentury art scene.” Jeanette Catsoulis, The New York Times

“Dyrholm gives a harrowing, pitch-perfect performance. A rare exception to the contrived biopic.” David Alm, Forbes

“Dyrholm’s performance is a powerhouse of authenticity. Nicchiarelli takes us close to Nico’s tattered charisma, and to the haphazard rituals of her life, all to figure out what made her tick.” Owen Gleiberman, Variety
