A grieving mother takes matters into her own hands after the local authorities fail to make any arrests following her daughter’s brutal murder 7-months earlier. Winner of multiple awards including a BAFTA for Best Film.
After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three billboards leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Woody Harrelson), the town's revered chief of police. When his second-in-command, Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell) gets involved, the battle is only exacerbated.
From the director of acclaimed In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a pitch-black funny and breathtaking film depicting a brutal and provincialised America.
