Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) is a single mother of two who decides to take things into her own hands after her daughter was brutally raped and murdered seven months previous. With the police investigation seemingly stalled, Hayes hires the three billboards of the title, which are located just outside of the city of Ebbing. The three billboards are a challenge to the city’s seemingly inept police force, and the local media, whom Hayes believes have all failed to do their jobs properly.
Won 2 Oscars, 5 BAFTAs, 4 Golden Globes, & 3 Screen Actors Guild Awards.
“McDormand is at her fiery best as the tough, demanding Mildred…and Harrelson takes the happy-go-lucky sheriff into heart-breaking scenes that leave comedy far behind.” ~ Damon Wise, Radio Times
