THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is a darkly comic 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, painting 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.
Q-tips say: Mr. Q liked it. Mrs. Q says: intriguing movie about a strong woman but some of the things she does I question many of her ways. The language from just about every character is rough througout the movie. Who are these people that have to continually speak that way. One of Mrs. Q’s favorite character is Peter Dinklage, & also, Frances McDormand, Woddy Harrelson, Clarke Peters. A good movie in many ways but the constant language and questionable rough ways they go about solving their problem, makes me wonder what people loved this movie so much.
