This award winning movie stars Frances McDormand as Mildred, a mother who is fed up with the efforts of the local law enforcement in Ebbing, Missouri. Mildred's daughter was murdered seven months ago and little progress has been made to find the killer.
Mildred decides to rent three billboards to keep the case alive while criticizing Sheriff Willoughby, who is played by Woody Harrelson. The billboards read "Raped While Dying", "And Still no Arrests", followed by "How Come, Chief Willoughby". This upsets the locals including officer Jason Dixon, who is played by Sam Rockwell. Dixon and the town folks snub Mildred any chance they can while Willoughby tries to reason with her even though he is dying from cancer. But Mildred is not to be deterred.
This is one of the best films I saw in 2017 as evidenced by its Golden Globe wins as best drama, best actress in Frances McDormand, best supporting actor in Sam Rockwell, and best screen play. This movie was extremely well acted, directed, and written. It was filmed in a little over 30 days which is a huge tribute to this. Every person involved in this movie did a fantastic job. It's still playing at the theatre but it's not a blockbuster like Star Wars, so it may not last much longer. Go see it. It's well worth the price of admission.
I gave this movie 4 out of 4 stars.
