Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Starring: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage, Abbie Cornish, Lucas Hedges, John Hawkes

Writer/Director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) brews a particular blend of dark comedy and humane compassion, and with his newest film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, he strikes a perfect and satisfying balance. Winner of the People's Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival.

After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes makes a bold move, painting 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 is only exacerbated.

“A gut-twisting, cinder-black comedy about communal guilt and individual forgiveness, which roars off down some extraordinarily brassy narrative gambits, diesel fumes wafting in its wake, and with the ambient bombast cranked up through the roof.”
