Martin McDonagh, 2017 115 minutes Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Abbie Cornish, Lucas Hedges UK, USA English 4 January 2018 Dutch

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.

Thu Jan 4 & Sat Jan 6, 4.15pm (Advance screening; this film will be shown on a daily basis from January 11 onwards)
