Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Martin McDonagh, UK, USA 2017, 121 min., English language, Dutch subtitles. Cast: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Abbie Cornish, Lucas Hedges

A frustrated and grieving mother antagonizes her local police force to call attention to the lack of progress in the search for her daughter's killer, in the latest from dark comedy master Martin McDonagh (IN BRUGES, SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS).

Strong, brave, fed up with bullshit, and desperate for justice, Mildred makes a bold move, postering three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby, the town's revered chief of police. When his second-in-command, Officer Dixon - an immature mother's boy with a penchant for violence - gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement escalates.

Martin McDonagh has created a darkly comic drama that is smart, narratively unpredictable, and filled with superb performances. On its surface, THREE BILLBOARDS… is a film about grief, forgiveness, anger, and resilience. Yet McDonagh layers in myriad observational moments about racism, war, sexism, and a deeply divided society, all captured in this fictional Missouri town.
