Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri – trailer – Sheriff hasn’t found who murdered her daughter.  Mother protests in some straight forward ways  – arrives in cinemas 12 January 2018

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING MISSOURI is a dark comic drama from Academy Award winning director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges).

This is how it goes

Months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case. Mildred Hayes makes a bold move.  She paints three signs leading into her town with a controversial message.  All directed at William Willoughby, the town’s revered chief of police.

The Sheriff’s second-in-command Officer Dixon, an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved.  This is when the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement turns into raging protest

Director: Martin McDonagh

Writer: Martin McDonagh

Cast: Frances McDormand, (Academy Award winner) as Mildred Hayes , Woody Harrelson (Academy Award nominee), Sam Rockwell, Abbie Cornish, Peter Dinklage, John Hawkes, Lucas Hedges, Samara Weaving, Caleb Landry Jones

Newsbites: Frances McDormand is a stunning actress. Her role as the angry mother wanting justice is superb. It could be Oscar-winning time for her again. Frances has also won praise from her co-star Woody Harrelson. He described the performance as one of the best on the big screen.

Mother, Mildred Hayes, is tough and doesn’t take nonsense from anyone.

The town where the movie is filmed is actually a small mountain town in western North Carolina called Sylva.

Mildred marks the first time McDonagh has written a female lead for a film. But she is perhaps his most relentless character as well.  An aggrieved mother without regret who comes to test the very fabric of her town.

“I’m doing everything I can to track him down, Mrs. Hayes. I don’t think those billboards is very fair.” ~ Police Chief Willoughby

“You do not call an officer of the law a f***ing prick in his own station-house, Mrs. Hayes. Or anywhere, actually.” ~ Officer Dixon
