After seven months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at Bill Willoughby, the town's revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Jason Dixon, an immature mother's boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement is only exacerbated.

i analysed for there to be themes of retribution that commonly come from the western genre with a kind of southern american gothic inflection. actors did a great job, it gave me a weird sensation when i caught myself finding humour amongst the contrasting solemn storyline

It is one of those of movies that makes you look deep inside yourself and then changes the perspective towards other human beings. You realise everyone is going through same pain and you try your best to help them out.

I honestly would of gave this movie a 10/10 but the biggest gripe i have with it is its ending. Everything and everybody was fantastic in this but that ending is such a sour cliffhanger with the crazy journey we went on with these characters. Other than the ending i truly enjoyed this in every way.

Great film. I feel lucky to have caught this on TV from start to finish. It has a simple, thorough and easy but impactful storyline. In my opinion the best storylines. This film also uses the technique of defining expectations extremely well. Just as you've figured out a character, the movie reveals pretty much the opposite of what you think of them. Very clever way of telling narrative. Some great cinematography in this film aswell. Some scenes stood out to me with like following shots and establishing shots while also continuing the plot further. Very clever indeed. Great acting and great characters, which I think is the focus point of this film other than the plot which is very basic and linear. The character development and characters in general is what we keep on watching the film for. Overall great watch. I wouldn't give it any higher than an 8 though as it seemed extremely unrealistic at times and tried its best to be cool and tarantino- like however failing a lot of the time. - 8/10

Really enjoyed this one. Simple plot but highly enjoyable with an outstanding performance by Frances McDormand. Filled with the perfect mix of drama, crime, and even comedy at times This movie is stacked with such a fantastic cast also and it leaves you with an interesting ending. Deserves all the praise and awards it received a few years ago. Definitely would recommend it’s a great watch 8/10

MoviePass movie number 19 was Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. The 19 movies I have seen so far with MoviePass have been extremely varied: drama, horror, comedy.....and The Killing of A Sacred Deer which just defies categorization. But of all the movies I have seen so far, Three Billboards is by far my favorite. The movie stars Frances McDormand as a mother who buys three billboards outside the small town she lives in to bring attention to the fact that it is coming up on a year that her daughter was raped, set afire, and murdered and no arrests have been made. It sounds like a basic premise.....but this movie goes off in different tangents that you don't see coming. What you think may be a murder mystery film turns out to be something completely different. It's a drama at heart, but there are darkly comedic laugh out loud moments. For a movie that touches upon grief, relationships, revenge, family, police brutality, and even a healthy dose of racism thrown in, you find yourself laughing a lot. Let me take a moment to suggest that this movie should be renamed "Frances McDormand Earns Another Best Actress Nomination". She is amazing in this role. She is a broken woman grieving for her daughter and she is not letting anyone get in the way of her grief. She is taking on the world.....with a massive chip on her shoulder. She isn't nice to people and has an acid tongue throughout the movie. She also makes plenty of bad choices....Lordy, does she make some bad choices. But you care about her from the moment the movie starts. She is almost in every scene and you cannot take your eyes of of her. Every little movement, every little expression means something. The movie also stars Woody Harrelson as the police chief and Sam Rockwell as one of his police force. And once again, I see either of these men receiving Oscar nominations for this film. Both are great, but Mr. Rockwell's performance as a slightly racist and bumbling inefficient policeman is the better of the two. Mr. Harrelson's role is just the "quieter" of the two. That acid tongue that Frances McDormand's character has? That is half the reason you find yourself laughing throughout. She always has a snarky comeback and always gets in the last word with anyone she takes on. Which brings me to a point: the dialogue in this movie can get pretty rough. But it adds something: almost all these characters are angry and imperfect and that is how they talk. Lots of F-bombs, the N-word....and the most use of the C-word I have heard in a movie. If you're a prude, you may find the dialogue a little concerning. So, if you are planning to go see a film in the next few weeks....or even if you aren't....do yourself a favor and go see this film. I know I have been recommending a lot of films lately, but truly, this is the one to go see. It will blow you away. Everyone leaving the theater last night was discussing how much they liked it. Seriously. See this movie. You'll know what everyone is talking about on Oscars night.

A simple but eventful story. A film that truly presents how much a mother would do for their kids. The storyline is weak, but Frances McDormand did a great job to make the story feels so tearful and real.
