Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
A 2017 drama film written, co-produced, and directed by Martin McDonagh. It stars Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, and Sam Rockwell. McDormand plays a mother who rents three billboards to call attention to her daughter’s unsolved murder.
It’s easy to see why this film has critical appeal. It’s a dark and twisting tale of what happens when a bereaving mother takes matters into her own hands. It may be labelled ‘black comedy’, but there isn’t anything to laugh at here. It’s more like a morality story.
As the 19 year of love interest of McDormand’s ex husband says.. Anger Begets Anger.
The film is currently at the Oscars for Best Picture, Lead Actress and Supporting Actor (Harrelson & Rockwell) and original screenplay.
