This 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 (Multiple Award Winner 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 shine, with both winning Best Actress and Supporting Actor respectively, in all the 2018 Awards Presentations - inc the Oscar and the BAFTA. 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!
