We kick off the 2018 Awards Season with what may be the best film you will see all year! In this darkly comic drama, a mother personally challenges the local authorities to solve her daughter's murder, when they fail to catch the culprit.
After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs 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), an immature mother's boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement is only exacerbated.
The performances all round are outstanding, but McDormand and Rockwell really do have a shot at top honours at this year’s Academy Awards. McDonagh’s (‘In Bruges’, ‘Seven Psychopaths’) film may be awkwardly titled, but it is brilliantly executed. It is wildly violent, brilliantly funny and deeply moving. And so very smart!
