Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Carried almost single-handedly by Frances McDormand, the film revolves
around Mildred Hayes, a divorced mother living with her son on the outskirts
of a remote town. She also had a daughter who was raped and killed on a mountain
road not far from home. Frustrated by the lack of progress in the investigation,
Hayes decides to rent three dilapidated billboards, publicly accusing the town’s
revered chief of police of incompetence. When his deputy, an immature mother’s
boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Hayes and Ebbing’s
law enforcement is further exacerbated. While dealing with grief, anger, revenge and
violence, the film is extremely funny, primarily because of Hayes’ stubbornness and
ability to humiliate people by her extremely sharp tongue. She is assisted by the overall
atmosphere of a small town full of colourful characters: a racist cop, a friendly midget,
a smart advertising guy and a local gorgeous who can’t tell the difference between polo and polio.
