Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Synopsis

Director

Strong, brave, fed up with bullshit, and desperate for justice, Mildred Hayes might be 2017’s Woman of the Year. After months have passed without an arrest in her daughter’s murder, Mildred (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, postering three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Oscar nominee Woody Harrelson), the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command, Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell) – an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence – gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement escalates.

Martin McDonagh (who won an Academy Award for his debut short film) has created a darkly comic drama that is smart, narratively unpredictable, and filled with superb performances.
