Plot Outline:

In this darkly comic tale a mother, who is frustrated at the lack of progress following the murder of her daughters months earlier, buys and posts three messages in billboards leading in to town, pointed directly at the well-liked chief of police. When other disparate characters begin to get involved in the proceedings, the grieving mother and Ebbing Police Department really get into it. -- Chris Kavan

Frances McDormand is a treasure delivering a bad-ass performance that is an instant classic.

Certainly among the best films of the year, with standout performances from Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell - and the rest of the cast, Woody Harrelson, Caleb Landry Jones and Peter Dinklage among them, is pretty damn good as well. The film is one emotional punch after another, dry, dark humor punctuated by some deeply effective drama. This is one of those films were good and evil are definitely painted in shades of grey - just like life, and it doesn't wrap things up in a bow. Deserving of every award and nomination and certainly a standout film of 2017.

A solid story which reflects that there is goodness in every person. Multilayered and emotionally deep. Despite the incredible emotion and complexity of the story, the film was successful on presenting the plot clearly and powerfully. It was a very nice ensemble. Seems like there is no small or big roles. The script was amazing, it encapsulates the humaness of every character. Perfect!

Coen Brothers-lite Oscar bait

Frances McDormand is outstanding as the extraordinarily stubborn Mildred Hayes who is grieving her daughter's brutal rape and unsolved murder. She stirs a ruckus by renting 3 billboards (roll credits) to goad the cops into reopening the case.
The first half of the movie begins well enough. The major players are all established and while many characters are unlikable, they make sense in the film's universe. Woody Harrelson is the popular police chief; Sam Rockwell is his boorish racist lieutenant; John Hawkes is the nasty ex-husband, and Lucas Hedges is the bullied son.
As the film progresses, it shifts from a naturalistic and brutally blunt style to something more cartoony and contrived by the standards set in the film's universe. Like it's trying to be a parody of what is expected fr...

Plain simple : go see this brilliant movie !

“Raped while Dying.
Still no arrests.
How come, chief Willoughby?”

Those who read my writing attempts occasionally, know that I thoroughly hate everything that has the appearance of a serial or when prequels and sequels are being produced just to exploit the story even further. So, don’t panic while reading the following statement. I hope they’ll come up with a sequel to “Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri“. A continuation of this brilliant story where we’ll learn how Mildred (Frances McDormand) and Dixon (Sam Rockwell) handle the case. I am sure that this film will be difficult to surpass in its genre. And not because of some amazing special effects or action-packed film sequences. But because of the ingenious story and the unparalleled acting. And even though the story is fi...

Three Billboards - Review

LIFF31 2017 #6

"Chiquitita, tell me what's wrong?"

Out of all the films I've seen at LIFF, this is easily my favorite and a great way to end this years festival. "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" is dark, funny, heart-felt, and a breath of fresh air. Never slowing down or drag on. It's plays around with genres and has a lot to say, politically or truth.

This is the best I've seen from Frances McDormand, which isn't new because it's McDormand. She delivered a performance that will get her another nomination (or win) at the Oscars. You can feel her pain and hate, but also see a softer side to her character which makes you have sympathy for Mildred.

Sam Rockwell, on the other hand, gives one of his finest performance of the film. The character Dixon ...
