Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)


THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is a darkly comedic drama from Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh (IN BRUGES). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award® winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, commissioning three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award® nominee Woody Harrelson), the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is only exacerbated.

This movie is another big movie I have been wanting to see. I loved Fargo and this movie’s previews gave me the same feeling.

In the end, I would say the billboards were not a good idea. I won’t say why, so as not to spoil the movie.

I will say that I was not prepared for the – more obvious to those of higher intelligence – direction the movie took. Ugly, but truthful, and in the end shameful.

Writing your own ending with this one makes it that much better.

OMG! The scenery in this movie was so good that I could actually feel the wetness of the water from the river. INCREDIBLE! I did a little reading and discovered that while the scenery was based on actual data (from the United States Geological Survey), it was hand painted by artists.

As for the story…I literally cried three times.

Such a wonderful movie with a very touching story.
